computer hardware, electronic components, consumer electronics  
Computer systems such as personal computers, workstations, and portable computers, typically include components housed within an enclosure. Some components, such as central processing units (CPUs) and memory chips, typically mount on circuit boards within the enclosure. During operation of the computer central processing unit (CPU), a large amount of heat is often produced. To maintain the functional integrity of such electronic components, it is required to maintain the temperature of these components below a predetermined value. A heat sink is used for cooling such components. A regular computer heat sink is extruded from aluminum, having a plurality of radiating fins. The heat from electronic componenets is transmitted to a plurality of heat sink fins after being absorbed by the base and then performs heat exchange with cold air in the interspace between heat sink fins thereby achieving the purpose of heat dissipation. In addition, a fan is installed above the heat sink in some types of heat sinks, which speeds up the airflow in the interspace thereby accelerating heat dissipation. A heat sink is typically attached or otherwise thermally connected to such an electronic component.
