Passive cooling techniques fall short of doing the job for today’s high-performance processors in small form factor systems. By deploying more advanced techniques, fast processors can be kept cool with cool-bearing fan sinks, improved sealing technology, and flexible heat pipes. Martin discusses the technology behind these approaches and their benefits.
