Default IBM doubles CPU cooling capabilities with simple manufacturing change

I guess we'll see whether the 'double' claim holds up in practice, but there seems to be good potential in this idea-

"According to a new paper released at the IEEE Semi-Therm conference, IBM has discovered a way to dramatically improve processor cooling. Unlike some other recent cooling breakthroughs, IBM's discovery appears to be one that should be relatively inexpensive to implement, and could have a significant impact on consumer microprocessors in the near future. Without fundamentally changing the approach to CPU cooling today and without the use of more advanced setups like water coolers, IBM says that they can double CPU cooling capacity while making it easier and safer to do so. "

It sounds great in theory but all things sound better in theory then do in the real world state. But it does some promising.

except it's not theory if they've done the real world testing, which they have. the link show the pictures of the real world product, which is just basically a change in how they finish up the CPU, not a big change and an easy one to make.
