If you look at your graphics card or CPU cooler, you are likely to see an aluminum and / or bronze based cooling solution. After all, these are the materials most often used to conduct heat in the world of computers.
Obviously, bronze is superior to aluminum, however, it is also much more expensive. For this reason, most of the time, manufacturers prefer aluminum which, in addition to being more practical in manufacturing, is also very competent in heat conductivity, taking into account its price.
However, these are not the most conductive materials on the market.
Do you know which is the best heat conductor in the PC world?
Therefore, aluminum has a thermal conductivity of 205W / mK and bronze has a thermal conductivity of 401W / mK, being the most used materials on the market. However, silver is superior to bronze, reaching 429W / mK. (Hence it is used in some products such as Arctic Silver thermal paste).
However, of course, we also have the diamond, capable of reaching 2300W / mK. (Interestingly, there is also thermal paste with diamond in its composition).
Interestingly, graphene is superior to diamond in thermal conductivity, reaching 5300W / mK. Being preferable when manufacturers want something super light, and with a performance between bronze and aluminum.
In short, if you want a well-cooled machine, nothing better than putting a few diamonds on top of the CPU and graphics card! This, to reach crazy OC levels! (I’m kidding, don’t assault any jewelery shop for more FPS).
Furthermore, what do you think about all of this? We are just talking about a small curiosity in the world of cooling. Share your opinion with us in the comments at low.
