Air cooler

Air cooler

This fan works parallel along with the heat sink process. A heat sink usually absorbs the heat of your system which is produced by the components of the system from your CPU. After that fan ventilates all the absorbed heat from the system. This is one of the most common ventilation processes to reduce heat from the CPU. Air cooling system is widely used for its efficiency at the lowest price.

In a word, heat moves from warmer objects to the cooler objects so we use this technic in the liquid cooling system. The energy which is generated by CPU is purified by cooling agents. Here heat is cycled through a liquid unit to cool down the unnecessary heat of the system.
