As you can see, the cooling systems we selected for the survey are adapted to the new LGA1366, LGA1156 and AM3 systems, many of which are updated versions of older models Cooling
. Some of the companies did not bother to do much, adding only the adapter to the new chassis, and others made more significant changes: from the addition of ribs Cooling
And heat pipes, until a different fan is attached (stronger or weaker). On the other side of the updated cooling systems are my body Cooling
Designation for new residency; My body Cooling
Which are specially designed and suitable for heat emission conditions and new housing configurations.
What is common to most coolers is the basic structure. They all have a copper or aluminum base that transfers the heat from the processor to a number of heat pipes that move the heat from the bottom of the heat sink to the top. At the top are aluminum ribs designed to dissipate the heat from those heat pipes to the space, where the role of the fan, which allows for high heat dissipation, takes place by transferring air from one end of the cooling to another. So the warm air, emitted from those ribs Cooling
, Is directed to a specific direction, corresponding to the chassis circuit, and then evacuated out by the ventilators.
Another important factor in the heat sink is the thermal paste, which is applied between the processor and the heat sink and is responsible for transferring the heat from the processor to the base of the heat sink with maximum efficiency. Most of the heaters now come with thermal ointment. Moreover, the base of some of the coolers is already smeared, and others come with a tube or bag that contains this cream.
