What if Intel decided to release a gold CPU?

...but this is a stupid idea

MannyPCs 1 point 11 months ago

Naw, cmon its a great idea.

syg101 3 Builds 3 points 11 months ago

you can't have a transparent CPU cooler, you need a metal plate for heat conduction and transfer. that plate is what in the end will stop the cpu from being seen ever. Also there is a pump in the cpu block for an AIO, so it would look ugly in the end.

It was just a joke, but I know.

no, no, no. Mixing metals might be a bad idea.

The CPU is covered by the thermal paste and cooler regardless, so you wouldn't see it. A very pointless waste of resources for two companies that are already behind where they want to be in production.

Transparent coolers and transparent thermal paste. That's extraordinarily hard but still doable.

Captaincow285 2 points 11 months ago

Transparent coolers won't work. Transparent CPU coolers would be prohibitively expensive or extremely useless for it's cooling purpose.

Uh... what?

asusisthebest17777 submitter 1 point 12 months ago

Like there are rose gold cpus :O

The CPU is covered by the CPU cooler, you won't be able to see it at all, doesn't make much sense to make them different colors...

asusisthebest17777 submitter 0 points 12 months ago

At least add LEDs to them because they are the last part of a PC that isn't RGB.

Matthewtina2015 2 Builds 2 points 12 months ago

you can't even see them...

asusisthebest17777 submitter 0 points 12 months ago

Transparent CPU coolers are the solution. Maybe put the LEDs on the side of the CPU?

tomtomj2 8 Builds 2 points 12 months ago

That would never work.... the CPU is too small and you wouldn't see it anyway with the cooler ontop...

syg101 3 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

not true, have you seen an RGB HDD? or RGB cables? or what about RGB radiators?

unicykle 3 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

Yeah but have you seen RGB RGBs??

Wat.

Wat

Ok

C'mon guys, you don't see what he's doing?

Entrainers 1 point 11 months ago

I'd rather a company like EKWB include multi-colored heatspreaders with their clear waterblocks

vagabond139 5 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

But they would be blocked since the coldplate is metal...

Entrainers 1 point 11 months ago

Threadripper maybe?

What intel actually needs to do is work on their pricing.
