  Computer cooling - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In a typical installation of liquid nitrogen cooling, fans blow air onto the heat sink of the CPU, as water is pumped through a pipe which ends over the heat sink, and similarly liquid nitrogen can be pushed out of a dewar through a pipe which ends over the heat sink.
Extra cooling is usually required by those who run parts of their computer (such as the CPU and graphics card) at higher voltages or frequencies than manufacturer specifications call for, called overclocking.
Some CPU cooling designs blow the warm air directly towards the back of the case, where it can be ejected by a case fan (for example Arctic Cooling's Freezer 64 Pro).

 CPU coolers compared!
But using a CPU as a heater - and all you need to test a CPU cooler is a heater - is like using a vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre to prop up the short leg of a table.
I took this picture when I was using the heater to test water cooling gear (see that piece here); it had ordinary white thermal transfer compound ("heatsink grease") between the resistor and the plate then, but now it's held together with Arctic Silver thermal epoxy.
I made the rectangle rather larger than a normal CPU contact patch, to compensate for the fact that there was another thermal junction between it and the heater, which would hurt the coolers' efficiency.

 CPU Cooling   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
In basic terms, a CPU is a collection of millions of microscopic electronic 'switches', all crammed into a tiny space known as its 'core'.
Since the transfer of heat relies on complete contact between the CPU core and the heatsink base, Thermal Interface Material, a fine grease or thin pad, is usually applied in the join between the heatsink base and the CPU core to maximise the efficiency of heat transfer.
In the past, a heatsink alone was sufficient to keep a CPU cool, but as newer CPUs are increasingly generating large amounts of unwanted heat, the surrounding air becomes too hot and the heat transfer stops.

 CPU Cooling for the Athlon Thunderbird
This was cool enough to keep Windows from crashing, but with even a moderate amount of general use, the temperature would increase to about 55°C. At that temperature, a reboot is impossible, so I would have to shut down the machine, let it cool off, and then do a "cold" boot.
The idea is that with proper airflow, you get one continuous stream of cool air coming in through the front of the case, past the drives and the first half of the motherboard.
This meant that the fan was not only drawing cool air in from the front of the case, but it was also recirculating warm air from inside the chassis.

 CPU Water Cooling FAQs
SUMMARY: CPU water cooling is tons more efficient and quieter than air cooling but carries a higher initial price and will require modification to your case.
Overclockers spend a lot of time on cooling and with good reason - we all know heat is the enemy to speed.
Air cooling can only take you so far and at some point water cooling has to be considered.

That enables a CPU build in functionality that reduces the power consumption.
If you overclock the CPU it is advisable to use such a program as the CPU gets hotter as specified.
The CPU permanently checks whether there is something to do or not.

CpuIdle created the very idea of software CPU cooling: CpuIdle was the first power management and CPU cooling software providing online-cooling during normal PC activity.
When I was surfing on the internet or working in VS.net, the temp op the CPU rised up to 65°C, now it's only 43-45°C. This is just amazing.
Present temperature of Athlon XP 2000+ is lower than it was with the double slower Thunderbird CPU.

Even as new (a year and a half ago) the CPU was running something like 70 degrees celsius (158 F) after playing THPS 3 for while.
You'r CPU fan traditionaly blows towards the heatsink although I read a guy's post about changing it to improve airflow.
My CPU use to reach 72 degrees but that is because the fan on top of it is held on by cable ties
