Lord Kryo Puts His Hands on 17 Coolers
Краткое содержание статьи: Overclockers can sing a song about it. Extreme overclocking of any Intel or AMD processor often fails due to insufficient cooling. The only solution is a powerful cooler/fan which keeps the die-temperature at low temperature levels. Nonetheless, we tested 15 CPU coolers extensively and came to the conclusion: form and lay-out do not say anything about efficiency or performance of cooling!

Standard PCs are only equipped with cheap coolers

The standard coolers, which you can find in most PCs, are not suitable at all for overclocking. Who plans to tune up his system by overclocking has also to consider that the CPU gets a powerful cooler. Otherwise the CPU will heat up too much by overclocking and a cheap cooler cannot handle these amounts of heat.

You can easily see the difference between quality models and no-name products as you can find them in discount PCs. The heatsink of every cheap cooler is usually made of cast steel. It works with a fan of simple design which has to work without any special bearing mechanism. The parts are made of plastic often show burrs and a good contact between cooler and CPU cannot always be guaranteed.

Battle against thermal death: The optimal CPU cooler

How can you characterize the optimal CPU cooler? For this you have to know that there are two thermal interfaces. One is the junction between the die of your CPU and heat spreader, the other is the thermal resistance between surface of the cooler and the ambient air.

Let's have a look at the heat spreader that touches the die of your processor. You have to make sure that this junction has a good thermal conductivity. Any gaps impair the cooling effect, no matter how good the cooler is designed.

The major role is played by the spring bracket that you attach to the socket in order to press the heat sink onto the die. Sometimes, micro-gaps can't be avoided. Perfect smoothness can never be achieved because any material has certain ruggedness on the surface. Furthermore, the pressure of the bracket is unequally distributed.

You have to apply cooling paste to seal off any micro gaps. An alternative is also a thermal pad, which is basically a piece of adhesive tape with high thermal conductivity stuck to the heat spreader.

Now the distributed heat has to get absorbed by the ambient air. Two criteria are important - the surface area and the air flow. If you believe it or not, the material only plays an inferior role here. For example a copper heatsink can be worse than an aluminum one if the surface area of the copper cooler is smaller. Our tests prove it as you can see in the results.

История мейнфреймов: от Harvard Mark I до System z10 EC
Верите вы или нет, но были времена, когда компьютеры занимали целые комнаты. Сегодня вы работаете за небольшим персональным компьютером, но когда-то о таком можно было только мечтать. Предлагаем окунуться в историю и познакомиться с самыми знаковыми мейнфреймами за последние десятилетия.

Пятнадцать процессоров Intel x86, вошедших в историю
Компания Intel выпустила за годы существования немало процессоров x86, начиная с эпохи расцвета ПК, но не все из них оставили незабываемый след в истории. В нашей первой статье цикла мы рассмотрим пятнадцать наиболее любопытных и памятных процессоров Intel, от 8086 до Core 2 Duo.
