Although the CPU heat sink is not an expensive accessory, if there is no CPUheat sink, the CPU will generate a lot of heat and will reduce the frequency by itself at high temperatures, which not only threatens the safety of other parts of the motherboard, but also affects its performance. There are currently three types of CPUheat sinks on the market, air-cooled, integrated water-cooled, and split water-cooled. So how to choose?
Air-cooled heat sink
Air-cooled heat sink is the most commonly used heat sink, which is composed of copper pipes, cooling fins and fans. The CPU is in contact with the heat sink base and conducts heat through silicone grease. When heat is generated, the heat will be transferred to the heat sink fins along the copper pipe, and then the airflow of the fan is used to blow away the heat on the heat sink fins to achieve The effect of cooling the CPU.
Integrated water-cooled heat sink
Water-cooled heat sinks will become more popular in the past few years. The integrated water-cooled heat sink is relatively simple to install, just screw the screws. The integrated water-cooled heat sink is composed of a cold exhaust and a radiator head. The integrated water-cooled heat sink is basically all fixed when it leaves the factory, and it is relatively safe, so the installation is very simple, and the heat dissipation capacity is much better than that of the air-cooled heat sink.
Split type water-cooled heat sink
Split-type water-cooled heat sink is mainly for high-end players who like to do it. The cost is relatively high. It mainly consists of water block, coolant, water pump, pipes, water tank and cold exhaust.
