Computer, Notebooks & Tablets: Processor fan Video Guide

A processor fan is also referred to as a processor cooler. The device consists of the heat sink and the fan and provides for the necessary elimination of the heat, which is automatically generated when the processor works. The processor fan functions via a power and control connection, which is available in three different versions. The differences of the different models can be found in the controller. The 2-pin connector contains two cables. One cable can be used for ground and the second cable for supply voltage. The speed of the processor fan is not included in the control. The second form is the 3-pin connector, which contains one pin each for the supply voltage, the ground and the tacho signal. The speed is not included in the control. The third and last form is the 4-pin connector, which was invented and launched in 2004. With the 4-pin connection, the speed governor was installed in the fan. This can determine the temperature of the controller via a PWM signal. The control signal and the supply voltage are conducted on different lines. The 4-pin connector enables flexible cooling of the processor fan

Each processor fan should be cleaned at regular intervals to remove dust and dirt. If a lot of dust has already accumulated in the processor fan, then it can no longer perform well and cools less accordingly. The dirt resembles an insulating layer. The cooling fins become hot and the fan begins to rotate faster and faster to maintain the cooling performance of the processor fan. Due to the fast rotation, the processor fan emits more noise and can be perceived as annoying. Regular cleaning prevents this process and loud noises. The processor fan should be carefully disassembled before cleaning. For laymen and beginners, a specialist can be engaged, since the incorrectly carried out installation and removal can cause gross damage to the processor fan. The fan must be separated from the cooling fins after removal. The cooling fins should then be blown out with compressed air. A fine and long bristled brush can be useful for this work. The leaves of the fan must be cleaned, as they can also be dusty. The heat conducting paste can then be removed and replaced by a new heat conducting paste. After cleaning, the processor fan can be reassembled. Now the processor fan should work properly and quietly

Various processor fans are available on the market. They differ in performance, design and function. The different models have been equipped with numerous details. The Arctic Freezer 13 processor fan and processor cooler belongs to a popular and modern processor fan. Due to the 45 fin body, the transmitting cooling capacity can be up to 200 watts. The high-quality equipment of the processor fan includes 4 heatpipes and the MX4 heat conducting paste, which has already been applied. The device is suitable for any current high-end CPU. The Arctic Freezer 13 processor fan works very quietly and produces hardly any noise. It is compatible with AMD AM3+, AM3, AM2+, AM2, FM2, FM1, 939, 754 Intel 755 and 1150 (Haswell), 1155, 1156 , 1366 models. The assembly can be carried out easily and quickly by laymen. The fastening system was equipped with modern and high-quality push pins. The weight of the article is about 699 grams and the product dimensions are 12.3 cm x 9.6 cm x 13 cm. The fan speed can reach between 600 and 2000 revolutions per minute. The voltage can be up to 12 volts. Another very successful and popular model is the Arctic Alpine 64 Plus processor cooler. It has been equipped with unique details and functions and works particularly quietly. The unit has a unique cooling performance and is equipped with an aluminium heat sink. Among the special details are the ready to use MX4 thermal paste and the 92 mm PWM fan as well as the push-pin mounting system. The Arctic Freezer 13 processor fan is compatible to the AMD socket: FM2+ / FM2 / FM1 / AM3+ / AM3 / AM2+ / AM2 / AM2 / 939. The weight of the article is 91 grams and the product dimensions are 11.5 cm x 10 cm x 7.5 cm. The device is available in black and silver colour.
