Fans / CPU Coolers
Your CPU needs to maintain a steady optimum operating temperature — at room temperature, around 68 to 79 degrees Fahrenheit — in order to work safely without damaging integral components. When your processor gets too hot, it could cause detrimental system failures, crashes and even physical damage to the CPU. A Connectivity Center computer cooling fan or a heatsink and ball bearing fan will help ensure that your hardware is operating at a safe working temperature.
These are low-cost cooling solutions that can make a big difference during long-term computer use throughout the year. The Connectivity Center 80-Millimeter by 80-Millimeter Cooling Fan provides a fan speed of 2,500 RPM and operates at 28.3-decibal acoustic noise. The more economical Intel Pentium Heatsink offers a 3,000 RPM fan speed but has a slightly higher acoustic output at 32 decibels. The Connectivity Center is happy to assist you with finding the right fans and CPU coolers for your unique needs.
