Thermal Analysis of CPU with Variable Heat Sink Base Plate Thickness Using CFD

The computational fluid dynamics is concentrated on the forced air cooling of the CPU using a heat sink. This paper utilizes CFD to identify a cooling solution for a desktop computer, which uses an 80 W CPU maximum whereas this number will be increased in the range of 70-120W in the forthcoming desktop computer systems. The design is able to cool the chassis with one fan with air blowing over heat sink attached to the CPU is adequate to cool the whole system and the power supply fan.
