A large copper pot is used, sitting on top of the GPU and chipset, and cold transfer through the original heatsink plate to the CPU. This was cooled down to about -20 C to achieve the new world mark. (Intel Atom N270 @ 2315mhz) For more information you can check out the original forum thread.

Submission + - US Air Force to launch a new drone

pestario writes: The US Air Force announces next version of the highly successful unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) — The Predator. The Predator is known to have played a major role in eliminating many terrorist targets in Yemen and Iraq.

The new version, called The Reaper, is 'about a third longer, and twice as heavy, than the Predator.' And while the Predator is designed to carry 2 hellfire missiles, the Reaper will carry 14 hellfire missiles. Wired has the coverage.

Attacking drones — as opposed to reconnaissance drones — have been controversial due to the disconnected nature of remote combat they provide.
