Well it's not really either. As CPU's advance we pack more transistors in areas as we increase efficiency. The overall heat is decreasing but the heat per area is increasing and our common coolers obviously can't dissipate and transfer the heat throughout the cooler or CPU case as quickly as needed. We need better conduction, we don't need LN2.

It really surprises me people thinking air cooling is going to be suitable forever. As tech advances and speeds up stuff is gonna get hotter everyone needs to deal with it.
Who is your LN2 dealer and what does he do?
It's interesting to hear about the clock speeds but it's just not realistic for 24/7 use.Edited by pengs - 4/19/12 at 8:26pm
