That high-performance CPU or GPU you’re eyeballing for your next laptop is nothing if it’s not backed by an effective cooling system. Yet consumers tend to know very little about the cooling in a laptop.
We fortunately had time to catch up with Dell’s Travis North, who works as a Thermal Engineering Technologist. North answers our burning questions on whether a heat pipe is better than a vapor chamber, whether you should re-paste a laptop, is 100 degrees too hot, and more.
In the first section, North talks about a Dell patent on laptop cooling. You can watch the interview below or on YouTube at this link.
