Next month Intel is going to ship its first and only desktop hexa-core processor, the Core i7-980X with a modified cooler which is supposed to be both quieter and better performing than the current version.
Intel is working on a small design change to the Core i7 980X Extreme Edition processor. The change covers the Intel thermal solution (HSF) only, and consists of a redesigned impeller that makes it quieter, overall. This is done by downsizing the edge of the impeller blades to 0.3 mm, and perforating the impeller hub (central portion connected to the motor). The slightly revised Core i7 980X Extreme Edition package should start shipping from June 7.
