Abstract

Disclosed is a computer cooling system by intentional max period using maximum hardware capability. During the maximum cooling period, CPU speed is lowest Fan power is maximum though the sound noise increase and system performance is reduced. The user can reduce system temperature once by staring the intentional max cooling period. Because the fan speed is restricted by noise limitation, fan speed is not set to max hardware capability value. So the cooling by fan is not enough for whole thermal solution of the present system. As additional solution
