The Death of the Noisy Cooling Fan

GE has introduced new cooling technology that could mark the end of the road for those old, noisy PC cooling fans.

GE’s DCJ technology is an advanced cooling solution for the next generation of thinner, quieter and more powerful tablets, laptops and other electronic devices. These devices, as thin as a credit card, are half as thick as conventional cooling fans and use half the energy. And, GE’s technology is quiet, it is virtually inaudible to the ear.–grcblog/youtube

  1. When will the GE DCT cooling device be available? Cost?

    I am very interested because I have constant nightmares that the bearing on my CPU fan has failed and there goes my CPU!

    Less moving parts – the more dependable!
