About Thermal Pad

For computer performance enthusiasts, heat is the enemy, and a thermal pad is one of the weapons of choice. Any time you look inside a computer or game console, you will see heat sinks covering many of the processor chips. However those heat sinks can only do their job if there is a way to transfer the heat from the chip to the heat sink. This is where thermal pads come in. A CPU thermal pad sits on top of the processor, providing a path for the heat to move from the chip to the heat sink. Whether you need a CPU pad or a GPU pad, start your search on eBay. A proper thermal pad can reduce your temperatures significantly, and let you spend more time gaming and less time worrying about thermal throttling. Let your heat sinks do the work they were designed for?put a pad between them and the chips they cool because air is too good an insulator.
