Passive Computer Cooling System that will save billions in electricity bills

Passive Computer Cooling System

The passive computer cooling system, which is undergoing optimization at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, has the capacity to save more than $6.3 billion in electricity per year. Cuong Nguyen, a graduate student of UAH, comes up with this idea as a part of his chemical engineering thesis. He and his professor Dr. James E. Smith, who is also an UAH chemical engineer professor are working together to optimize this cooling system for computers.
The cooling system was awarded with $10,000 in 2014 by the UAH Charger Innovation Funds, and it uses convection to circulate 3M’s Fluorinert FC-72 liquid through channels in the computer’s processor, making heat to sink and serve as an external radiator for an effective cooling solution.
