    they should use some sort of lube to reduce friction.

    There is no friction on that scale.

    Not a single close answer in this thread. Enthusiasts
    Alright you can't say everyone is wrong, make fun of them, and then not answer the question. Come on guru, why do CPUs get hot?

    Largely due to impedance (i.e. resistance) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU_power_dissipation

    "Friction" might not be the right word but the basic concept is the same. Heat generated in a CPU (or any other electrical device) derives from electron collisions with the conductor and the resulting loss of kinetic energy. Transistors also produce more heat than simple resistance in a wire for example, because of the way they operate, pack millions of them into a CPU and you have a nice source of heat.

    It's physically impossible for them to run cooler than ambient!

    Why?

    Because Chuck Norris said so! [full stop]

    I win, what's the price?

    Dont even need collisions, just magnetic fields passing by each other.
