Abstract

This study investigated numerically and experimentally fluid flow and heat transfer in the desktop PC. Three patterns of the positions of air inlet and outlet were tested to find the best one for cooling. The computer components in the present study are CPU, finned heat sink, power supply, motherboard, CD, HDD and fans. Three components which were generate heat are CPU, motherboard and power supply and there were two openings for air inlet and two for air outlet. The air inlet velocities were 1.2, 1.8, 2.4 m/s with constant CPU fan velocity. The studied parameters were the changed of inlet air velocity, powers of CPU, motherboard and PSU and the positions of inlet air. The numerical results obtained are found in a good agreement with the experimental results. The experimental results show that the maximum temperature was 81℃ at 16.5 W and 1.2 m/s. Numerical results showed that the CPU temperature reaches 89.6 ℃ at 18.5 W and 1.2 m/s. From the results, it was found that; the temperatures of the main components (PSU and motherboard) affected little by CPU power and vice versa, the finned heat sink has higher cooling efficiency and the pattern 1 was the best pattern for CPU cooling.

Abstract

This paper investigates numerically and experimentally fluid flow and heat transfer inside the desktop P.C.. The study of cooling considers the components; CPU, heat sink, power supply, motherboard, CD, HDD and fans. Three components have heat source (CPU, motherboard and power supply unit). There were two openings for air inlet and two for air outlet. The tested values of air inlet velocities were 1.2, 1.8 and 2.4 m/s. The work investigates the effect of inlet air velocity and powers (PCPU = 8.5 W, PPSU = 24 W, PMO=12 W) of multi-components (CPU, motherboard and PSU). The numerical results obtained (by finite volume method CFD) are found in a good agreement with the experimental results. The results show that the highest temperature for CPU with block heat sink was 88.1℃ (PCPU = 8.5 W, PPSU = 24 W, PMO=12 W), the temperature of the heat generation components decreases linearly with increases of inlet air velocity. The CPU temperature increases with CPU power linearly. Motherboard temperature was the lowest one due to its position and area (52oC). Full details of flow field and temperature distribution are shown.
