I'm not sure why that was happening.

Deep nerdland here. Could you explain to the class what's going on?

it powers its own demise? my mind has been blown

This made it out of the hopper?

Scynne - 2008-02-29

Yes. Yes it did.

Frank Rizzo - 2008-03-01

for some reason, a couple people have the honor of being able to circumvent the hopper completely. Its dumb and annoying.

if the video is any good it will make it out ok. There is no need for bullshit.

Cry some more

A Sterling Engine runs off of heat, wiki it. If this works in real computers its such a ridiculously simple idea everyone will be kicking themselves for not thinking of it. Apparently the link above shows it does, so commence kicking.

I wikied your whatever and all I see is a robocock.

It looks like the setup has the sterling engine blowing air across a radiator that's connected via heatpipes to the chipset heatsink itself.

Nice example of negative feedback actually, the hotter the chipset gets relative to the outside air, the faster the engine will turn and the more it will cool the chipset.

I'd be interested to know what the equilibrium point is, wether it's higher or lower than using a passive heatsink or heatsink + powered fan.

Prof. Newton's second law means me and my chipset would rather have a powered fan, thanx, and there's no way around it.

Cute idea, though.

Newton's second law is about the acceleration of a body when it is subjected to a force.

If you meant to say the second law of thermodynamics, that is also wrong: The 2LoT says that heat tends to flow from hotter bodies to colder ones, and that is exactly what is supposed to happen in this video.

Fail and double fail.

Stog - 2008-03-01

You had me at 'powered by it's own heat'.

-1 for boring, non-explanatory video.

Not funny.
