How do CPU coolers work? | News | TechRadar

lol That was bad SZ

Yeah, cooling pipes...
I had a very basic understanding of these until recently when I decided to start Over Clocking and needed a cooler, beyond what Intel provided. Amazing how impressive simple technology can be....

The air cooling is good enough for me, don't want to risk a leak in the system for water cooling. Can't wait until a cold plate processor cooler is made. That, I will buy.

The reason I didn't go with liquid is because so far as my studies on the subject could determine you only have about a 20% chance of the cooling system lasting 2 years.
