Just because it’s getting cooler outside, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t think about how cool the components inside your computer are. Adding extra cooling to your system is not only a great way to increase the longevity of your computer, but can also positively impact its performance.
Cooling Pads don’t only raise your laptop up off your desk, they also include extra fans to push more air through your computer. Another benefit can be a more ergonomic typing position. Many Cooling Pads, like the one pictured, can be adjusted to better suit your preferred typing position.
Case fans are a cheap and easy way to increase the airflow and cooling of your desktop computer. They come in a variety of sizes, configurations, and even colors to customize your case. Because many cases come with extra mounting points for case fans, adding them is as simple as putting in 4 screws, and connecting it to your system's power.
Your CPU can be one of the hottest components in your system, and adding aftermarket cooling is essential if you want to squeeze every hertz of speed out yours. CPU coolers come in many forms; from the simple heat-pipe equipped heatsink with high-performance fan show here, to coolers with water-blocks and radiators, like the one shown at the top of the page.
