Better Cooling being Conceptualized by Microsoft

The right temperature level, particularly for laptops, is an important need. Apparently, we have seen the influx of various cooling fans catered to ensure that laptops do not overheat and that alone seems to be the window of opportunity seems to be banking on as it is set to unveil its own cooling solutions.

Microsoft Corp. is also responding to the rapid success of the Arc Mouse, which reached the top-10 list of best-selling mice after just two months on the market, by releasing the award-winning mouse in four special edition colors: deep olive green, marine blue, eggplant purple and frost white. These products provide a great way for people to display their unique style and work in comfort on their notebooks.

The Notebook Cooling Base will be available in July for an estimated retail price of $29.95 (U.S).(3) The Arc Mouse in special edition colors is available this month for an estimated retail price of $49.95 (U.S).(3) The Wireless Mobile Mouse 3000 in special edition colors is available now for an estimated retail price of $29.95 (U.S).(3) The Arc Mouse in special edition colors and Notebook Cooling Base are available now for presale on and will ship when they are widely released. The products are backed by a worldwide three-year limited hardware warranty from Microsoft.

Domino A.L.C. Can Solve PC Heating Problems

Heat is something that can slow our computers down and while many people are turning to bigger and additional fans to negate this problem, there is a better alternative which you can turn to. The new cooling liquid solution comes by the name of Domino A.L.C., a liquid cooling solution introduced in the market by CoolIT Systems.

The Domino is a compact, factory-sealed system that can be easily installed in minutes. You just open up the case and install a special retention system that positions itself directly over the CPU. It mounts using its four spring-loaded screw posts, one located on each corner. According to CoolIT, it can be installed into even the most crowded chassis.

Overheating chips has been an issue since the first Pentium IV processors. Most technicians have installed a third party auxiliary fan to help control ventilation but this has had its own share of issues, particularly when it comes to power distribution from the normally usual power supply.

You can just imagine the accumulating heat inside a PC. It is not only the processor that is generating that high level of temperature. Remember, you have other peripherals operating as well and put them altogether, you can imagine how the temperature in your PC would be.

In a nutshell, your computer needs all the help it can get as far as normalizing the internal temperature of your CPU. Coolit Systems has just come up with a dandy idea. Check it out.


What is so Cool about Transparent Casings?

One thing you will notice as far as modern casings today are concerned is that a lot of them offer transparent sides thus revealing the internal chips of your CPU. Is there a bearing with regards to the overall performance of the computer? Not necessarily. Outside that of being fashionable, these transparent casings only allows you to showcase you internal computer chips and parts which normally makes use of plexi glass as a fashion statement.

They may look great but they are added costs since they are specialized casings for a chosen few But as far as cooling or improving the scale of PC performance, you can bet that they barely have something to do with improving actual processes and if ever they do, it is all psychological in nature.

With that in mind, why are people buying them? PC owners just want to be different and stylish. Some can afford to turn to these casings for a different look and identity. For an extra amount of dollars, people get them mainly for status symbols. However, inside of them, unless something powerful comes up like processors or other PC parts is concerned, on the outside they are nothing more than fabricated computer cases that house pretty much the same peripherals as the standard PC case.

Do You Ever Turn your Computer Off?

These days, we all know that computers bear the brunt of being always powered on for one reason or another. Among the reasons include:

1. Uninterrupted Downloading
2. Timid Power on and Power off by Users
3. User forget to turn them off

In this time and age, it would be best to take into consideration the fact that we need to conserve electricity and by all means, computers make use of it. While to most, the cost of leaving it on is something that they can afford, the real issue here would be the computer life and of course the energy resources which we are really eating up a lot as of late.

Awareness of the energy conservation efforts through the proper use of computers and maintaining them is something we need to attend to. People today could care less but the fact of the matter is, we can add that extra effort that will benefit us the most. Heat levels in your computer can just be imagined. Remember that one issue inside CPUs today is cooling and leaving them on with auxiliary fans to do the ventilation and cooling habits is something that you should really address as well.

If we want to make use of a PC that will last longer then perhaps it would wise to consider giving them some rest periods. This is not enforceable. All I am saying is that computers needs some respite as well even for an hour. Also, save on energy since the savings you can get from these efforts can turn out to be enough savings for future needs such as a computer upgrade once new ones hit the market.

Tiny Compressors for Better PC Cooling to be launched

The temperature levels in most computers today have a significant impact on a PC’s performance. We know of the usual auxiliary fans required to serve as added ventilation but in some cases, the proper cooling for these chips are not enough. Cooling is important and while the fans are trying hard to negate the rising heat levels from using internal chips and processors, Purdue University has reportedly developed a tiny refrigeration system that will surely help a lot as far as CPU temperature levels is concerned.

This is indeed a welcome development considering that many people are forever relying on additional cooling systems for their CPU or laptops.

“Traditionally, you use a fan to blow air on a chip — room temperature air,” said Garimella. “If I could push chilled air onto the chip, then I get a lot more cooling.” The devices are designed to dramatically increase the amount of heat that can be removed from a computer, he added.

The system pumps refrigerants through tiny compressors and tubing. The technology could be integrated into a microprocessor, or it could replace a computer’s traditional air-cooled heat sink.

The new cooling technique will probably be used first in gaming systems and then in high-end laptops, Garimella projected.


Once this gets out, we can see better enhancements towards our current crop of CPU and cooling issues that seem to continue to haunt us when it comes to identifying the right temperature to assist CPU performance. Purdue professor Suresh Garimela even opened the doors for smaller computers which will garner the nod of people who love to embrace technology and its fruits as they come.
