Sapphire (http://science.slashdot.org/science/04/04/14/1621235.shtml?tid=126&tid=134) Is a new liquid that doesn't get anything wet.

Good Morning America (http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/news/04132004_bb_sapphire.html#) shows exactly what you can do with this.

Heh, nice thought if your hard drive didn't have to move to be fast...the HDD head would just float around your drive instead of spinning.

Damn cool system, but your 7200rpm drive just became a 200rpm drive!

Are you kidding? You just heard about this???


I've been soaking my liver in Sapphire for 20 years now!

It'd be an interesting debate on that topic because the drives are sealed so if the seal didn't break (stickers didn't let go) then the drive could potentially function normally under this liquid solution. I think however that you would likely only submerge the motherboard anyhow because the other compoents of the system wouldn't need the cooling anyhow. (IE: cd-drive, hard drive, etc.).

I have a feeling we will see someome try this in the future but I'd be surprised if it became the standard. And... who knows this solution might not even conduct heat very well. Just a thought.

You guys are a tough crowd. Make one stupid joke and you break out the thick rim glasses and the pocket protectors.

If you really want to get into it you need to now the heat transfer rate of the liquid. I have looked at all their documentation and can find no information that would lead me to believe it should be used for cooling anything. I did that with just my glasses if you want me to break out the pocket protector f.u. I donít have one.
