New Alloy provides Cooling based on Magnetism

Researchers at the University of Cambridge have discovered
a material that gives a whole new complexion to the term ‘fridge magnet’. When
this alloy is placed in a magnetic field, it gets colder. Karl Sandeman and
his co-workers think that their material – a blend of cobalt, manganese, silicon
and germanium – could help to usher in a new type of refrigerator that is up
to 40 percent more energy-efficient than conventional models.

Can this same technology be used in PC Component cooling?? If the cost of this material is low enough, we may start seeing magnets
in our PCs soon!
