Since the development of the first electronic digital computers in the 1940s, the effective removal of heat has played a key role in ensuring the reliable operation of successive generations of computers. As day by day our work load is increasing and hence our use of computers are increasing which leads to increase in heat and hence consequence is sabotage of computer with our work. So it’s a great challenge to packaging engineers to remove the heat generated by the chip efficiently. Many researches are going on in this direction for the past few decades. In the last decade or so CFD simulations have become more and more widely used in studies of electronic cooling. Validation of these simulations has been considered to be very important. The computational fluid dynamics is concentrated on the natural air cooling of the CPU using a heat sink. This paper utilizes CFD (using FLUENT) to identify a cooling solution for a desktop computer, which uses an 5 W CPU. The design is able to cool the chassis with heat sink attached to the CPU is adequate to cool the whole system . This paper considers the optimal rectangular fin heat sink design and cylindrical fin heat sink design with aluminium base plate and the control of CPU heat sink processes.
