Intel and AMD get interested in Danish fledgling's cool technology  

2007.12.11
Danish start-up company NoiseLimit has developed a new kind of computer processor cooler that sucks away heat without making a noise
As computer processors become ever more powerful, they produce more and more heat. So the processor cooling fans have to work harder by spinning faster. And that in turn increases the level of noise they make. This is no trivial matter in a computer-packed world, since noise pollution has been shown to increase stress and negatively affect our ability to concentrate.
 
Four years ago, Danish entrepreneurs Henrik Olsen and Henry Madsen took up the problem and started developing a new method of processor cooling that would deliver high levels of efficiency with low levels of noise. Today, they have the answer - a patented technology called SilentFlux, marketed through their company NoiseLimit.
 
The SilentFlux cooler has no moving mechanical parts, but uses the "bubble pump" principle of the coffee percolator to push a special fluid around a closed circuit from the processor to the cooling head. This has the advantage of being self-regulating - the more heat the processor makes, the faster the fluid circulates, and the greater the cooling effect (more technical details on the link below).
 
NoiseLimit has opened sales offices in both Silicon Valley in the US and in Taiwan, and the major chip producers AMD and Intel have started looking at SilentFlux technology in connection with their own technology programmes. In order to mass produce its SilentFlux cooler products, NoiseLimit has partnered with the German concern Behr, which specialises in automotive air conditioning and engine cooling systems.
