Your CPU (central processing unit) is the core of your system, where all the information gets processed. This is the brains of your computer system.
CPU Cooling is essential to your CPU processor. Also choosing the right CPU Cooler is extremely important and crucial to the performance, stability
operation in your computer is handled by your CPU. As a result, the CPU produces a significant amount of heat. Excessive heat can cause instability
and even damage to your CPU. A general rule of thumb is the faster your CPU, the more CPU Cooling it will require
Acoustic PC stocks the best
CPU Coolers in the Global market today.

There are many reasons for upgrading or changing your current CPU cooler. OEM coolers usually only provide the minimum amount of cooling
require to run the processor and get by. CPU intensive applications such as gaming or graphics rendering and other demanding applications can
cause your CPU to run at high temperatures for extended periods of time causing instability and shortened lifespan. Many computer enthusiasts
also like to overclock their CPU. Overclocking involves running the CPU at a high frequency than suggested by the manufacture. This yields
increased performance, but also generates more heat than the OEM CPU cooler is designed to handle thus puting the CPU at risk of permanent

Some OEM coolers are also exceptionally loud. Replacing the CPU cooler with a quieter cooler will provide a more silent operation without
necessarily sacrificing any cooling power thanks to tecnological breakthroughs in CPU Heatsinks that implement the use of heat pipes to increase
cooling power passively with out the need of a loud high speed fan. You can achieve the same cooling with a more efficient heatsink that requires
less air flow to get the same amount of heat dissipation. You can view our recommended selection of Quiet CPU Coolers.

Copper CPU coolers provide the best heat transfer from the CPU, but are heavier and generally more expensive. Aluminum CPU coolers do not
transfer as much heat, but provide the best metal-to-air heat dissipation, are lighter, and usually cheaper. The best CPU coolers usually have a
hybrid construction of a copper base with aluminum fins to utilize the strengths of both materials.

You can browse our selection of
CPU coolers and heatsink by socket / CPU type, procesor type such as AMD or Intel or even by manufacturer.
Please note that Bare CPU heatsinks do not come with fans and will need to be purchased separately. Don't forget to check out our selection of
Thermal Compounds to get the best contact between your CPU and your CPU cooler. We recomend Arctic Silver 5 as the premium Thermal
Interface material. Made by Arctic Silver In the USA. Arctic Silver Products are the first choice of enthusiast, IT Profesinals, Gamers, Overclockers and
pretty much anyone looking for the highest performance thermal Compound.

Here is a more in depth article on Processors CPU (Central Processing Unit ) & Why they get hot and how to cool them down.
Why do CPUs get hot?
In basic terms, a CPU is a collection of millions of microscopic electronic 'switches', all crammed into a tiny space known as its 'core'. Every time a single 'switch' operates, it generates a
tiny amount of heat. Whenever the CPU is working inside your PC, millions of these switches are operating many thousands of times per second. The collective heat generated can be
quite incredible, especially if the CPU is very busy.

To put this in real terms, consider a small room containing a single lit candle. It's not very likely that the single flame of the candle will noticeably warm up the room. Put a hundred candles
in the room and after a few hours, you might just be able to feel an increase in the room temperature.

Consider now, cramming millions of candles into the room. It won't be very long at all before the temperature in the room becomes uncomfortably high.

To create faster CPU speeds, manufacturers need to add more and more 'switches' to the 'core' of the CPU, vastly increasing the quantity of heat generated by its operation.

Heat = Damage
Excessive heat, if unchecked, can cause all sorts of damage. Moderate overheating of the CPU can cause hidden damage and shorten its working life, while excessive overheating can
actually cause the CPU to melt and destroy itself. With today's CPU's, this could all happen within a few seconds without some method of extracting the excess heat from the CPU core.

Help from Nature
So how can we get rid of the heat? A fundamental principle of heat provides the solution:

Heat always tries to move from hot things to cold (or cooler) things.

One 'thing' that is always in abundant supply and is easily heated in this way is Air. If we pass a flow of air over something hot, some of the heat will move to the cooler air as it passes over
the hot surface. The larger the hot surface area, the more heat can pass into the surrounding air.

Because the core of our CPU is quite small, we need to spread the heat over a much larger surface area to help get rid of it effectively.

The Heatsink
Especially designed for the task, the Heatsink is placed directly on, and heated by, the CPU core. This offers a far greater surface area for the heat to move to the passing air.

Since the transfer of heat relies on complete contact between the CPU core and the heatsink base, Thermal Interface Material, a fine grease or thin pad, is usually applied in the join
between the heatsink base and the CPU core to maximise the efficiency of heat transfer.

CPU Cooling
In the past, a heatsink with fans alone were sufficient to keep a CPU cool, but as newer CPUs are increasingly generating large amounts of unwanted heat, the surrounding air becomes
too hot and the heat transfer stops so the highend aftermarket CPU Coolers use Heat Pipes to increase heat transfer providing a cooler benefit for the CPU and quieter enviorment to the

To keep the process going we need to continually replace the heated air surrounding the heatsink with cooler air. The most efficient way to do this is with a heat pipe or multimple heat
pipes solderd to heat fins. A fan can be added for extra performance.

The fan-assisted the fins on the CPU heatsink is now quite effective at transferring heat from the heatsink BASE with the use of a heat pipe to the air, but must have a good supply of cooler
air for maximum efficiency. Since the CPU is mounted inside the PC Case, the hot air needs to be removed and replaced with cooler air like with the use of an exhaust fan.

Heatsink and Fan Maintenance
In most cases, The PSU has a built-in fan, and is quite adept at removing the hot air from inside the case, but it can be advantageous to add an additional fan, nearby the CPU cooler, to
push more hot air out of the back of the PC case.

As hot air is removed from the PC Case, cooler air is drawn from the outside of the PC Case, through the pre-cut vents in the side and front panels or even more ideal an intake fan. It is for
this reason, that it is imperative to maintain a good airflow around your PC when it is in use and not to block any of the vents or fan outlets. Again, additional fans in the case side (or front
panel) can be used to force cooler air into the PC case.

An unfortunate side-effect of the use of Air in this system is Dust. Over a period of time, fan blades and heatsinks will become covered with a layer of dust, which gradually reduces the
efficiency of the transfer of heat and the effective operation of the fans.

Regular checks on the heatsink and fans in your PC system and the removal of any build up of dust with an air-duster will keep the system in top condition and maximise the life of your
CPU. Something that will eliminate this problem will be the use of a
Fan Dust Filter.
