Making Computers Cool by Design

Feb. 12, 2014
Sponsored by Mentor Graphics
CPU cooling is a critical aspect of a functioning computer system, and for this reason the need for forced-air cooling is a significant factor that should be determined at an early stage in system design. Good airflow to heat-generating components, and adequate space and power for the cooling fan are a critical design requirement for any forced convection system. Read how NMB Minebea uses thermal simulation to predict design flaws.
