Computer cooling system- Cooling the system off Powered By Docstoc
					?Everyone who frequently uses a computer must have felt the heat released from the
system and the slow increment in the amount released with time. In order to cool both
the person and the computer, the computer cooling systems have been devised. These
devices cool off the heated devices thus, providing comfort to the user.

Computer cooling is a process of removing excess heat from the heated parts of the
system. Many parts of the computer system produce enormous amount of heat like
Integrated Circuits like CPU, chip sets and graphic cards besides the hard drives.
There is a need to remove this heat so as the components can keep on working
smoothly well within their temperature range of safe work operation. This is done
mainly with the help of heat syncs which increase the surface area which dissipates
heat, fans to speed up the air exchange between the heated one and the cooler ambient
one.

With the advent of the increased heat developed by such electronic components,
modern computer systems need proper ventilation system to get eased off from the
heated air. A failure to provide adequate ventilation through a modern computer
system may increase the chances damage to hard disk or other important components
due to overheating. It may also result in damage to the electronics and/or peripheral
units.

Heat dissipation in a computer system that typically includes a central processing unit
(CPU) is always a significant concern. This is due to the fact that heat is mainly
generated during its operation only. Due to this heat generation process from this CPU,
the temperature of whole system be it its interior or exterior rises. Because of this, the
operation of the CPU may get affected and the operation of other circuits of the
personal computer may sometimes become unstable.

The temperature rise in the system may lead to problems in the system. A computer
system cooling is typically used to remove thus generated heat from a computer
system. There are various known techniques, such as thermal conduction or
air-cooling, or the use of a heat pipe, or liquid cooling brought in use to cool off the
semi conductor devices of the computer.

Generally, a heat sink with the CPU of a laptop computer is employed to increase the
heat-dissipating of its surface area for more effective cooling. Heat sinks are often
attached to heat generating electronic components, such as microprocessors.
Computer cooling systems have great worth as they silently ensure the smooth
functioning of all the parts of the computer system.
