Researchers from Sweden's Institute of Technology have discovered that adding some nanoparticles to water can improve its ability to conduct heat by around 60 percent. These particles, most commonly oxides of commonly used heatsink metals such as aluminum, copper and zinc, work by enhancing the liquid's (most likely a mix of ethyl glycol and water) ability to absorb the heat from components while still allowing for the even flow that makes water cooling so effective. Such technology could help companies lower energy costs, and allow components to function more efficiently, and could help tech related companies produce even smaller clusters of transistors, knowing that they now have cooling solutions for the everyday user, and the corporate render-farm alike.
