55% better CPU cooling by combining the generative design of Diabatix and the advanced copper 3D printing of Amnovis

CPU overheating can damage the processor and cause instability in the computer. An efficient CPU cooling system ensures the best experience for the PC's performance. A 3D-printed custom heat sink can offer the ideal heatsink to keep the components within permissible operating temperature limits.


The high conductivity of copper makes it an attractive material for thermal management. However, 3D printed copper designs in laser-based processes are challenging. Additionally, a custom microchannel design that meets 3D printing manufacturing requirements requires a sophisticated solution. These problems limit the freedom to manufacture and design cooling/thermal management devices.


To tackle these issues, two innovative companies, Diabatix and Amnovis, having complementary competencies, joined forces to develop and manufacture a novel CPU cooler:

  • Diabatix's ColdStream automatically generates a sophisticated 3D design, thus widening the solution space of potential cooling designs.
  • Amnovis has pushed the boundaries of state-of-the-art copper additive manufacturing; therefore, it can manufacture complex 3D designs generated by ColdStream.

This collaboration resulted in a CPU cooler with a 22% decrease in temperature and a pressure drop reduction of 11% when compared to a conventional skived CPU cooler. Diabatix and Amnovis unleash their products and services to you in this webinar, specifically improving the design inside a conventional liquid CPU cooler.
