New CPU Fan

Featured Video Play Icon

This video discusses a new quieter and more efficient CPU fan developed by engineers at Sandia National Labs. As the impeller spins, it draws ambient air down the center of the impeller while the shape of the fins forces air past the fins and out radially. As the air flows over the fins, it draws heat from the CPU away. In a sense, the design combines a heat sink with a fan. (Video credit: Sandia National Labs; submitted by Adam L)
