hmmm... the CALM system does not convince me. Never mind the imprecise language on the web site, I can hardly believe that a passive system can efficiently dissipate the 40 odds Watts of a Pentium 4.

The article mentioned collects, as lennymr rightly notes, relatively old or trivial knowledge, and ends up pointing to Koolance as the ultimate solution.

I like the Koolance idea, but (i) the case is a study in ugliness, (ii) it has three fans on the top of the case, which I am sure are not silent, (iii) the dB/sone values advertised on the Koolance site are not that impressive, and (iv) I would think that fluid might lend itself ideally to passive cooling, like fine radiator fins.

Any new ideas? BTW, if somebody feels that he/she can build me such a system (
