Tech Link (Cooler): Intel invents 5GHz stock cooler

Special thanks to dulber for reminding me to post this news item. It's a bit old, a few days off news posting, but still a very nice tidbits for the fanboys. I haven't heard or seen any other official announcements about this, but if I do see anything "public", then rest assured it'll be posted here.

Intel has created a self-contained watercooling unit that will enable the latest Pentium Extreme Edition chips to hit 5GHz with ease.

The cooler has come out of Intel's engineering department, which is staffed with a bunch of enthusiasts who have been trying to push the envelope at Intel to try and get the firm to move away from its 'overclocking is bad, mmmkay' stance.

And oh, good news about this (aside from getting a kick-ass watercooler) is that it's relatively cheap ($50 less). On a sidenote, I think I saw THG posted something about this quite some time ago (a year or two maybe)...
