2cmx1.5cm Heat Sink(Pack of 5)
A heat sink transfers thermal energy from a higher temperature device to a lower temperature fluid medium. The fluid medium is frequently air, but can also be water, refrigerants or oil. If the fluid medium is water, the heat sink is frequently called a cold plate.
When the airflow through the heat sink decreases, this results in an increase in the average air temperature. This in turn increases the heat sink base temperature. And additionally, the thermal resistance of the heat sink will also increase. The net result is a higher heat sink base temperature.
The increase in heat sink thermal resistance with a decrease in flow rate will be shown later in this article. The inlet air temperature relates strongly to the heat sink base temperature. If there is no airflow around the heat sink, energy cannot be transferred.
