In our weekly series on deals for building your new PC for the new year, last week we shared some deals on CPU processors and it was noted that some of the CPU processors do not come with CPU coolers. We understand that every CPU processor must have a cooler installed to keep it operating beyond boot-up, else it will quickly overheat and shutdown. Whether it is air or liquid cooling, a good CPU cooler is like an unsung hero quietly working in the background to keep the CPU processor alive and kicking.
Today we shine the light on an often overlooked computer component that keeps the CPU processor operating while you work on your programs and applications – the CPU cooler.
If you missed any of our previous Deal Alert: The Build A New PC weekly series, you can catch up on them here.
