Introduction to the working principle of water cooled heat sinks

The water pipes of water cooled heat sinks are connected to the water pump, the water cooling block and the water tank. Its function is to circulate the circulating fluid in a closed channel without leakage, so that the liquid cooling system can work normally. The water tank is used to store the circulating fluid, and the heat exchanger is a device similar to a heat sink. The circulating fluid transfers heat to the heat sink with a large surface area, and the fan on the heat sink removes the heat from the incoming air.

The essence of water cooling and air cooling is the same, except that water cooling uses circulating fluid to transport heat from the water cooling block to the heat exchanger and then dissipate it, instead of the homogeneous metal or heat pipe for air cooling. Part of it is almost a replica of the air-cooled radiator. There are two biggest features of the water cooling system: balancing the heat of the application object and working with low noise.

Due to the large specific heat capacity of water, it can absorb a large amount of heat and keep the temperature unchanged. , Due to the large surface area of ​​the heat exchanger, only a low-speed fan is required to dissipate heat to achieve a good effect.
