Noctua Revealed a Prototype CPU Cooler with Active Noise-Cancellation

Noctua has demonstrated a prototype CPU cooler that features active noise-cancellation that was co-developed with RotoSub that features the same disruptive interference technology found on headphones. The cooler is a D-type (twin-tower) heat sink with a large fan between its two stacks and speakers position along each stack.

According to TechPowerUp, Noctua placed a mic into the test chamber where visitors couldn’t hear a thing or at least anything that was “louder than the morning crowds at Nangang.”

    Holy shit! Damn that is awesome! Why did no one think of this before?

    Becouse it will make cooler prices jump up, their size will increase, and their performance will be lower, not to mention the added power consumption required.

    It quite simply might not be profitable.

    The guy at the booth said that this is possible by omitting sound wave that is the opposite of the one generated by the cooler thus canceling it and if the sound wave misses by little bit it well generate more noise so it requires a lot of testing.
