Where do you see the future of cooling going for processors? With all the advancements in processor speeds, that usually means more heat. Air cooling is going to reach a max I believe even with the larger fans and heatpipes. Alot of people have gotten into watercooling, which when done right draws heat away much fast than air cooling. But I believe the future is with submersive cooling. You have probably seen this done with oil bathed computing. It's where you submerse your mainboard into a non-conductive oil and then cool the oil. Since it's non-conductive your electric circuits will not short out, theres for the oil pulls the heat away instantaneous resulting in excellent cooling. Now let's face it this type of cooling is messy and also dangerous if not properly done. But I foresee systems slowly switching over to watching cooling, then in the distant future slowly moving over to submersive cooling. Again this is just my speculation on where cooling technology is going. The other option is they come up with nano cooling which then requires no heatsink at all. If your interested I will post some pictures I have at home of some submersive system that amatuers have done.
