There is a new feature in some of the recent ASRock motherboards like the ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 called "Dehumidifier". Here is the reportedly "official" video showing off this new feature: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mQfFVT4tT8
I was stunned by the effort they put into making the video, which actually led me to think that they are probably just trolling?
Anyway, here's the question:
Does this feature actually works or does anything at all?
My best guess is the setting heats up the MOBO (chipsets probably by inducing a load) to evaporate water condensed on the MOBO and runs the fans to blow evaporated water out. It's not a 'real' dehumidifier.
Gigabyte has re-engineered their PCB to simply not allow water (condensation) penetration on their MOBO's.
That is definitely real but I could easily why understand why you would think it is. The guy was super socially awkward and was one of the heads of marketing. It was made like on of those infomercials and the guy's last name was Wang.
I am pretty sure, seeing as computers are electronics, they would use a Thermoelectric cooler dehumidifier (or a combination of that and self AC), which is easy to implement into a computer, due to both the mechanics and the size they would use. And Jaquith, what you just mentioned would not work in ANY kind of system, You cannot evaporate something that is already evaporated and in the air.
