Join Mike Meyers for an in-depth discussion in this video Liquid cooling, part of CompTIA A+ Exam Prep (220-901) Part 1: Core Processing.
- There are few things that separate nerds from normals…more than liquid cooling.…By liquid cooling, I mean you take your CPU,…and you put some big metal mount on it.…This mount has got a hole in and a hole out.…There's a bunch of holes in the middle,…and liquid goes through this big mount,…taking the heat away, and then it's run out…and then cooled off somehow and cycled back.…Liquid cooling's been around for a long, long time.…Over 15 years now,…and back in the old days, it was pretty ugly.…There wasn't anything very standardized,…and there was a lot of custom work that had to be done.…
Things would leak from time to time,…and in general, it wasn't very pretty.…Today, it works really well.…Now, before we go any further,…I want to make sure you understand…that there are two types of liquid cooling.…The far more common type is called passive liquid cooling.…Passive liquid cooling means the liquid goes through…a big mount on top of the CPU.…It gets all heated up.…It's run through a radiator.…The radiator cools it down some,…
The CompTIA A+ 220-901 exam is comprised of six key parts. The first, core processing, is covered by this course. Instructor Mike Meyers explains the fundamentals of PCs, microprocessors, RAM, and BIOS. He also shows you how to set up, connect, maintain, and troubleshoot the main components of a computer.
Note: The six courses designed for the CompTIA A+ (220-901) exam preparation include core processing, core hardware, peripherals and building a PC, displays and printers, networking, and laptops and mobile devices.
