[THG/INQ] Thermaltake New Alloy and Phase Unit

Taipei (Taiwan) - Thermaltake says a new metal alloy will improve the performance of its upcoming generation of compressor coolers. At the Computex tradeshow in Taipei, a company representative told TG Daily the new material combines the best properties of copper and aluminum and could reduce temperatures inside cases by up to 30 degrees Celsius.

Thermaltake’s Ramsom Koay claims that the company went out on a limb and created not just another compressor cooler (the same type of cooling that modern refrigerators use), but a completely new type of metal material for the device. Subjectively, the new metal is actually much more flexible than any cooling material we have encountered. We expect the technology to support CPU and GPU (ATI and Nvidia) cooling.

The new design promises to cool parts down to 18 - 28 degrees Celsius. Thermaltake wants to ship the OEM/ODM/SI design as soon as possible, while enthusiasts, gamer, and overclockers will have to wait until Thermaltake has sufficient supply of the new material.

The compressor will come in two versions: One is OEM/ODM/SI-friendly and shows limited modifications, while the second version (which is not yet ready to ship) will feature flexible cabling for the CPU and the GPU. Both versions will be available before the end of the year, Thermaltake said.

THE INQUIRER was the first media outlet to cover the new compressor casing from Thermaltake. Sitting right in between water coolers and deep freezers, the simple, neat, near 0 degree fridge-type compressor has attracted our attention ever since CeBIT.

Thermaltake showed a near-final version of the setup, with more insulated and flexible pipes, as well as supposedly improved cooling performance. While it might not keep your CPU below zero, it should ensure that the die temperature doesn't go above some 30 C even at full load on quad cores. Thermaltake states an average 20 C temperature drop compared to the best 'classic' radiator-based water cooling.



The system is basically a micro vapour-condensation refrigeration contraption - think of it as a much larger and stronger cousin of the vapour chamber stuff seen in some recent Sapphire 3-D graphics cards, for instance.

All the heat it absorbs and removes from the, say, CPU, chipset and/or GPU location is then expelled out. The main components are the compressor, where the refrigerant liquid becomes a high-pressure vapour; the condenser, where that vapour again becomes cold refrigerant; a spiral expansion valve where that refrigerant drops its pressure abruptly; and an evaporator, the cooling block on your CPU or GPU or whatever. After passing through it, the stuff goes back to the compressor.

In summary, the Thermaltake compressor stuff is there, ready to roll: it is clean and neat, without massive tube mess, seems to cool well while keeping silent, and yeah some other vendors seem to now be looking at this method of cooling very seriously too. Hopefully we'll be able to bring you an early review soon. µ
We saw this a while back and everyone called BS on the phase unit. I still do.

What magic alloy are they using and why isn't it be used in military/scientific/industrial areas?

I swear to God this was posted yesterday or the day before. Was that thread deleted?

There was discussion in it about INQ's terminology.

An alloy that can conduct heat better than copper and aluminum? What the military doesn't use heatsinks?

Who says they don't? Do any of us build tanks, planes, supercomputers, etc for the military?

Plus, its not totally unrealistic that a private company comes up with an idea, material, invention or whathaveyou that the military didn't.
