Abstract


An experimental study on Thermosyphon Integrated Heat Sink (TIHS) for CPU cooling has been carried out for both natural and forced convection to analyze the performance characteristics of the CPU cooling module (TIHS) at steady state condition. A thermal model based on the experimental values has been developed to study the thermal behavior of Thermosyphon Integrated Heat Sink during CPU cooling. The thermal model is employed to determine the actual heat transfer and the effectiveness of the CPU cooling module and compared it with the conventional cooling method and found that there is an appreciable improvement in the proposed CPU cooling module.
