Popular PC Maker Reacts To Nvidia’s New RTX 30 Cooling Design

Nvidia’s new GeForce RTX 3080 Founder’s Edition graphics card ditches the “reference” style, single blower-style fan for a push/pull cooling solution. That much you already know. What you may find fascinating is that without any kind of thermal solution directly attached, a GPU like this would reach in excess of 750 degrees Celsius — about 100 degrees hotter than the melting point of aluminum. An Nvidia RTX 3080 inside a Falcon Northwest Talon PC Falcon Northwest So, cooling: it’s kind of important! You may also find it interesting that a GPU’s cooling design can directly impact the types of systems or options your favorite PC builds like Origin, Alienware, Maingear and Falcon Northwest might offer. In fact, Kelt Reeves of Falcon Northwest — the company largely responsibl...

L.A. suffered deadly heat, yet chairs sat empty at its cooling centers

Despite scorching temperatures that shattered official records and led to deaths on the street, many chairs ended up sitting empty at the handful of city cooling centers set up to spare Angelenos from the blistering heat. © (Al Seib / Los Angeles Times) The thermometer at Calvary Church in Woodland Hills registers 117 degrees during a heat wave last month. (Al Seib / Los Angeles Times) Fewer than 300 people used the six centers that were set up at Los Angeles city facilities over the Labor Day holiday weekend — averaging fewer than 11 visitors daily at each site, according to numbers provided by the office of Mayor Eric Garcetti. One cooling center in South Los Angeles had no one stop in at all on Labor Day or the previous Friday. Load Error Homele...

Comfort Tech Heating & Cooling employees love pups in the office – Think Local

Photo: Contributed Annabel and Murphy When customers visit the Comfort Tech Heating and Cooling office in Kelowna, the humans who work there are often overlooked at first. Much more attention is paid to the office dogs. Photo: Contributed Solo “Our customers love it,” Comfort Tech dispatcher Paula Broadhead says. “We have a gate, so they don’t have to come right in to the dogs. We always ask people if they’re OK to come in with the dogs, and most people just love it. “They spend time with the dogs before they get down to business.” While offices seem to be dwindling in the wake of COVID-19, the number of office dogs appears to be on the rise. Comfort Tech was ahead of the curve, however, inviting employees to bring their pups to work more than seven years ago. “It’s good fo...

All-in-one design integrates microfluidic cooling into electronic chips

An energy-efficient way to improve the performance of electronics systems would be to integrate microfluidic cooling channels into chips, to prevent overheating. However, state-of-the-art microfluidic cooling systems have previously been designed and constructed separately from electronic chips, preventing the channels from being integrated into circuits to provide direct cooling at hotspots. Because such integration greatly increases the complexity of chip fabrication, it would potentially increase the cost. Writing in Nature, van Erp et al.1 report an electronic device designed to have an integrated microfluidic cooling system that closely aligns with the electronic components, and which is constructed using a single, low-cost process. Power electronics are so...

A New System for Cooling Down Computers Could Revolutionize the Pace of Innovation | Science

In 1965, Gordon Moore, a co-founder of Intel, forecast that computing would increase in power and decrease in price exponentially. For decades what later became known as Moore’s Law proved true, as microchip processing power roughly doubled and costs dropped every couple of years. But as power increased exponentially, so did the heat produced by packing billions of transistors atop a chip the size of a fingernail. As electricity meets resistance passing through those processors it creates heat. More processors mean higher temperatures, threatening the continued growth of computer power because as they get hotter, chips decrease in efficiency and eventually fail. There’s also an environmental c...

Scientists use radiant cooling to help people chill out during hot and muggy weather

The novel coronavirus has made an enemy of one of humanity’s most reliable sources of comfort: the air conditioner. Given the airborne nature of the virus, recirculating air — a defining feature of traditional air conditioning — has become a dangerous proposition, with at least one example from China showing possible contagion in an air-conditioned restaurant. But a new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that it’s possible to keep cool without recirculating air, and to do so outside in Singapore, a hot and humid tropical environment. The process, known as “radiant cooling,” has taken on new importance in a time when fresh air is practically a health requirement. The study was originally intended to address another problem posed by air conditionin...

Who needs an AC for cooling?

© Provided by The Statesman Who needs an AC for cooling? In our approach to beating the heat by creating bubbles of coolness, we expend resources in cooling things that do not appreciate the effort. The heat capacity of things in a room that air conditioners cool is many times more than the cooling people need. Eric Teitelbaum, Kian Wee Chen, Dorit Aviv Kipp, Bradford, Lea Ruefenacht, Denon Sheppard, Megan Teitelbaum, Forrest Meggers, Jovan Pantelic and Adam Rysanek, from the Singapore campuses of ETH, Zurich and Berkley Education Alliance, Princeton University and the universities of Pennsylvania, British Columbia and California, report in the journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, an experiment with “radiative cooling” – a method to allow the body to throw out...

Three tips for using temperature sensors to improve cooling system efficiency and SLA management

Manage delta TThe alternative is to manage to delta T — the temperature differential between the cool supply air entering the data center and the warm air returning to cooling units. This approach allows data center operators to minimize the higher-than-necessary fan speeds common in the delta P approach and consistently manage thermal efficiencies to the design intent of the system.Adding temperature sensors in front of equipment racks provides visibility into rack-level temperatures that can be used in conjunction with the delta T measurement to ensure temperature SLAs are being met. The delta T is adjusted based on rack temperature needs, and the control system recognizes and generates alerts when operating parameters deviate from the design intent.With the emergence of the delta T cont...

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra teardown reveals two cooling systems

© Provided by BGR.in A recent discovery by iFixit indicates that the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra lineup has models with different cooling systems. Some use graphite layers, and others use copper steam chambers. The issue has generated buzz in the international media, especially after criticism regarding the “above normal” warming. But despite the explosive past of the Galaxy Note line, there is no evidence that excessive heat this time means anything bad. According to iFixit, when disassembling a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, the cooling system used graphite layers. This is a surprise since the company usually uses copper vapor chambers. However, the dismantling of another “Ultra” revealed the traditional copper solution. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 Ultra different cooling systems As per Y...
