Update and upgrade do not ignore them to let the processor run at full blood

There will be a wave of new processors coming soon, and with the price cuts on older models, it’s a good time to install new computers and upgrade processors. But the new installation of high-end computer or upgrade to the high-end processor, many partners will be worried about the processor heat problems, to choose a more powerful cooler. But now there are many types and varieties of coolers, what is the difference between them? How should I choose it? I’m going to briefly talk about it today.


First of all, there are now two major schools of processor coolers, the downward pressure type and side blowing type, which is actually the direction of the fan blowing air. The advantage of the side blowing type is that you can install a large size fan, wind power while the noise can be controlled, and can work with other fans in the chassis to form a smooth cooling air path, you can refer to the previous tweet “to help the graphics card or control themselves?


The downward pressure radiator refers to the way of blowing air downward, its advantage is that the volume is relatively small, especially the height is lower, so the compatibility of the chassis is good, Intel and AMD original fans are using this design. However, its cooling airflow spread around, forming a more chaotic wind path, more suitable for cooling pressure is relatively small configuration, such as Core i5, Dragon 5 a mid-range processor or absolutely no overclocking platform.


Nowadays, coolers are generally marked with their own wind capacity. Generally speaking, an airflow of 30CFM is sufficient for mid- to high-end processors with a TDP of 95W, and 35CFM for high-end processors with a TDP of 105W is also appropriate, so if you don’t want to overclock or have the idea of upgrading soon, there is no need to buy a high-performance cooler.


In addition, now the processor will be intelligent management of frequency, so I recommend the use of automatically adjustable speed fan, listening to songs, Internet, writing manuscripts in the processor load is low, low frequency, low heat, the fan will automatically turn to low speed, not only the noise is small, but also to a certain extent to extend the life of the bearing.


Finally, you should also pay attention to the motherboard, memory and other accessories “compatibility” issues, such as whether the large heatsink will be pressed to the memory and power supply system heatsink, the motherboard will not be too heavy, there is no back panel to level out the pressure and so on.



PS: As for the new wave of processors mentioned here, I believe that many of the DIY partners already know it by heart, and hope to understand their actual performance as soon as possible partners must remember to watch our push for the first time after the unban on July 7 21:00.
