Laptop Cooling Manufacturers Shifting to Server Cooling

It appears that manufacturers of cooling modules and heat sinks, particularly for laptops, are shifting focus to catering to the server market, reports DigiTimes. Supposedly, the reason for this is a drop in demand for notebooks, but an increase in demand for servers and server cooling due to the increase of cloud computing and online services.

According to the report, the Chaun-Choung Technology firm is getting many additional orders for heat sinks and cooling equipment for servers. The company is expecting that this increase in demand for server cooling equipment will increase the firm's revenues and profit margins.

Lastly, the report also indicates that Auras is collaborating with IBM to develop cooling solutions for servers based on water cooling. These are expected to start shipping in Q3 2013.

    Looks like small form factor builders are about to get a lot more cooling variety and performance : D

    Would they improve their cooling design? Most notebook's cooling system sucks so bad... Especially when the manufacturers skim out on heatpipes and aluminium fins.
