Water cooling radiator principle

The water-cooling heat dissipation and the air-cooling heat dissipation are essentially the same, except that the heat of the CPU is transferred from the water-cooling block to the heat exchanger by using the circulating liquid in the liquid cooling, and the heat-dissipating area and the heat-dissipating environment are far better. In general air-cooled radiators, the cooling effect of liquid cooling is very obvious. Let's take a look at the detailed explanation of the principle of water-cooled radiators!

Water cooling is becoming more and more popular as a high performance cooling system. But what makes water cooling so much better than air cooling?

The real advantage of water cooling is that it handles CPU wattages much more than any air-cooled heatsink and is immune to the high temperatures in the chassis. If used for low-power CPUs, water-cooled heat sinks are not much better at cooling the CPU than good air-cooled heat sinks. But when you use a high-end or extremely overclocked CPU that generates a lot of heat, even a small DIY water-cooling system will keep the CPU temperature at a fairly low level.

Water cooling is an ideal cooling solution for overclocking players for high-power chips. When used in non-player CPUs, water cooling does not have a significant performance boost in higher end air cooling, but it can produce much lower noise than any air cooling solution while achieving low temperatures.

The water-cooling block is a metal block with a water channel inside. It is made of copper or aluminum. It is in contact with the CPU and will absorb the heat of the CPU. Therefore, this part has the same effect as the air-cooled heat sink. The difference is that the difference is the same. The water cooling block must have a water channel through which the circulating fluid passes and is completely sealed, so as to ensure that the circulating fluid does not leak and cause short circuit of the electrical appliance.

The effect of the circulating fluid is similar to that of air, but it can absorb a large amount of heat while keeping the temperature from changing significantly. If the liquid is water, it is a well-known water cooling system. The function of the pump is to push the circulating fluid, so that the liquid that absorbs the heat of the CPU will flow out of the water block on the CPU, and the new low temperature circulating fluid will continue to absorb the heat of the CPU.

The water pipe is connected to the water pump, the water cooling block and the water tank, and the function of the circulating water is to circulate in a closed passage without leaking, so that the liquid cooling and cooling system can work normally.

The water tank is used to store the circulating fluid. The circulating circulating fluid releases the heat of the CPU here. The low-temperature circulating fluid re-flows into the pipeline. If the CPU has less heating power, the circulating fluid can be ensured by the large-capacity circulating liquid stored in the water tank. There is no obvious increase in temperature. If the CPU power is large, you need to add a heat exchanger to help dissipate the heat of the CPU. The heat exchanger here is something like a heat sink. The circulating fluid transfers heat to the surface with a large surface area. The heat sink and the fan on the heat sink take away the heat flowing into the air. In the case of a small closed liquid cooling system, the open water tank can be omitted to allow liquid to flow back and forth between the water pump, the water cooling block and the heat exchanger, and the circulating fluid is prevented from being exposed to the air and deteriorated.
