Spinning Heat Sink Design Could Trim Energy Use, Unleash Processing Power

Yep, it’s a post about a heat exchanger, but read on…

Instead of a heat-sink with a fan to blow air across it, the heat-sink becomes a fan itself. Reduce components and increase efficiency.

…the Sandia researcher behind the redesigned heat sink, thinks it could cut the national electricity consumption by seven percent…

I love stuff like this because its such an elegantly simple solution to what at first seems like a trivial issue to many, but has potential to make massive energy savings.
