OCInside have been modding an AIO cooler. In the first part of the AIO water cooling mod series, we would like to show you today at OCinside.de how an Arctic Cooling Hybrid II 120 graphics card cooler can be transformed to a CPU cooler and how to refill the AIO water cooling system, renew the tubes and prepare for future extensions like custom loop. We explain how to do that step by step in the following Arctic Accelero Hybrid II All in One liquid cooler mod guide.

Apple are re-thinking the controversial Mac Pro, after its oddball "trashcan" design met a mixed reception. Apple says that the current Mac Pro's design ended up being too thermally limited and inflexible. In particular, it wouldn't be possible to redesign that system around a single powerful GPU instead of the two more modest graphics cards it currently ships with; the side of the system that housed the GPU would just get too hot. Workloads that benefitted from two GPUs "didn't materialize to fit that as broadly as [Apple] hoped," meaning that many Pro workloads just didn't benefit as much from two GPUs as they would from, say, one big GPU or multiple processors.

Here's a new electronics cooling technology from Duke University. Engineers have developed a technology to cool hotspots in high-performance electronics using the same physical phenomenon that cleans the wings of cicadas. When water droplets merge, the reduction in surface area causes the release of a small amount of energy. So long as the surface beneath is hydrophobic enough to repel water, this energy is sufficient to make the merged droplet jump away.

Tim Berners-Lee has received the ACM A. M. Turing Award for 2016, for his pioneering efforts including inventing the World Wide Web. The ACM Turing Award, often referred to as the “Nobel Prize of Computing,” carries a $1 million prize, with financial support provided by Google, Inc. It is named for Alan M. Turing, the British mathematician who articulated the mathematical foundation and limits of computing.

If you're concerned about ransomware, this report may be good news. The platform nomoreransom.org is now available in 14 languages and contains 40 free decryption tools. Since our last report in December, more than 10 000 victims from all over the world have been able to decrypt their affected devices thanks to the tools made available free of charge on the platform.
