Introduction to CPU Coolers

Anger, Danger, Fire, hard work all these words are somehow related to heat. When it comes to the heat we all get worked up with a lot of random words up in our mind.

I am a great foodie, the first thing that comes into my mind about heat is the dazzling heat of delicious food when served hot, the surrounding smoke, butter dripping and a lot more.

Oh my god! I am drooling at this current moment. I feel the taste of hot sizzler in my mouth.

My friends and my mates around don’t feel the heat in the same way. My friend who amazes us in astrophysics starts blabbering about ‘SUN’ when we speak about the heat. I need to tell this, I live with a lot of gamers around me, and they are mostly worried about their CPU cooler fan when it comes to heat.

But why do we need to cool all this heat around us?

I need the sizzler in minimal heat since my tongue cannot handle a lot of heat, It would start blistering.

My astrophysicist friend would never like the sun to be cool but still what would happen to our solar system if it cools down?

We will discuss it in another one. Now coming to gamers and other tech freaks, they need to cool their gadgets to function themselves properly. Our brain wouldn’t be able to think properly if we get tensed up, how could a machine work properly?

IS CPU COOLER NECESSARY FOR YOUR PC?

Our computer may be one of the most powerful and intelligent devices our mankind has ever created but without the support of some parts, it would just stand as a hollow box with wires and chips.

CPU is the most important organ and is also considered as the brain of the computer without which the operating system cannot run.

The copper block present at the base of the cooler has some reapplied thermal paste which reduces the excess heat.

There exist two slots on the block: One, a mini-B USB port and the other, a 9-pin port. The best usage of these ports can be done such as the mini-B USB port can be connected with a 9-pin USB 2.0 header cable and the 9-pin port being connected to PWM splitter, which would allow the user to control the fans through the software.

The key feature is reinforced extended tubing. Fine nylon sleeves are added to strengthen the rubber tubing and also acts as a fine protective layer. This protects the Kraken cooler tubes from all the potential damage.

Cooling is even done at a temperature of 50 degrees with an overclocked hexacore processor. It would be able to cool all the octa-core processors.
