Many people will ask, does thermal pads really work, today CoolThermo will discuss with you, how does thermal pads work, does it really work?
Before discussing this issue, you have to think about why I use thermal pads. Yes, in order to improve the heat dissipation effect of the radiator and make the heat dissipate from the inside to the outside air faster, then the use of thermal pads can really achieve effect? The answer is yes. So why? Below I will list some data to give you a better understanding of this issue. We have an important criterion when choosing thermal pads, that is thermal conductivity. What is thermal conductivity? In short, thermal conductivity is an indicator of heat transfer efficiency. The unit is W/MK. Indicates that the thermal conductivity is better, and vice versa, the thermal conductivity of the commonly used high thermal conductivity gaskets on the market is 3W/MK, but many companies will choose higher ones, such as 6W/MK, 8W/MK, but correspondingly, The price will also be higher, so what do thermal pads do? Its function is to fill the gap between the heating component and the heat sink, so it is also called thermal gap filler. Its function is to replace the air between the heat sink and the heating component (air is a bad conductor of heat, only 0.023W /MK, very low), so that the heat is transferred to the radiator faster through it, so as to achieve the effect of cooling. Through my simple analysis, I believe you have found the answer. If you have any questions, you can leave me a message at any time, or send me an email, and I will reply as soon as possible.
