CPU Coolers: Everything You Need to Know

The CPU Cooler is a PC component responsible for dissipating away the heat produced by your processor.

Being the most powerful component of any computer, the CPU generates a lot of heat as a byproduct. This heat will make your computer shutdown or even permanently damage the CPU itself, if left unaccounted for.

This is where CPU coolers come in. They absorb this heat and release it in PC chassis’ which is then exhausted out by case fans.
