Yes, it is indeed cool seeing all those electronic components come together to create a computer. But the “cool” in the title refers to the system that you have installed to keep the temperature of the computer at a minimum. If you own a personal computer in your home then you probably know the importance of keeping the whole computer system cool. Heat is probably one of the most dangerous elements to your computer.
Your computer hardware can be cooled with the simple fans and having cooling vents in your computer case. There are, however, some cooling systems that use special liquids to keep the processor heat down so performance and overall integrity of the hardware is not compromised. The level of cooling system that you use on your personal computer depends on how insane your hardware, how insane you customized your components and how insane you are using your personal computer. The more work you do with your computer the harder the computer components work and the more you need some coolant to keep the heat at or below the threshold.
Now for bigger systems like computer networks of big companies, you’ll find that they use a more extreme cooling system. Now these big computer networks use big servers that need to have a sustained temperature of around 72 to 76 degrees Fahrenheit. Plus the humidity should be maintained as well. According to experts, an ideal humid environment should be 45 degrees. One could go to up to 60 percent that anything beyond that is totally unacceptable. And of course, these cooling systems should be capable of running round the clock and should have backup power supplies in case of the primary breaks down. You cannot afford to loose all your company data due to something that you could have prevented in the first place.
Housing your large components like big computer servers needs some planning as well since the structure itself can be designed to allow the free flowing of cool air which adds to maintaining the temperature at low levels. Consider having mesh front and rear doors for server cabinets since the design allows hot air to freely escape from the server.
Some who can afford install chiller systems which use glycol or plain water coolants. These kinds of cooling system for your computer hardware are made up of combinations of chillers, pumps and pipes. With this system you will need a bigger space and regular maintenance is absolutely necessary.
Is this cool or what?
