A computer enthusiast from Japan who goes by “Samurai Channel” on YouTube posts various videos of daily life, but the ones that really went viral involved cooking real foods on various computer processors. Most modern CPUs are kept cool with computer fans as well as heatsink fans by actively exhausting hot air, but when this doesn’t happen, the temperatures get hot enough to fry an egg, literally.
There are also more unusual cooling methods, like liquid cooling, but all modern day processors are designed to cut out or reduce their voltage or clock speed if the internal temperature of the processor exceeds a specified limit.
- The world's most advanced processor in the desktop PC gaming segment
- Can deliver ultra-fast 100+ FPS performance in the world's most popular games
- 6 cores and 12 processing threads bundled with the quiet AMD wraith stealth cooler max temps 95°C
Cooling may also be designed to reduce the ambient temperature within the case of a computer, such as by exhausting hot air, or to cool a single component or small area (spot cooling). It’s not just the CPU that needs cooling, but the graphics processing unit (GPU) and the motherboard’s host bridge as well.
