Large CPU Block Heat dissipation
The large/Faster/more competent a CPU gets the hotter it runs.My Droid gets uncomfortable warm when I’m doing heavy computing.I know that my PC CPU has an enormous heat sink and a pretty hefty Fan joined to it at the hip.Is there a solution for a sub-miniature CPU?
I wouldn’t be to concerned with that quiet yet, yes it is a concern however before we know what cpu we will use there is now way to know how to dissipate the heat from it.
Whatever CPUblock is chosen the chooser should keep an eye on the heat output byproduct of operation.
depends on size of cpu. possably make is a blok on the side so that it can have a side fan to expel heat?thats a possable solution, but it would incress the size of the blok…
I don’t think that a ‘fan’ would be appropriate on a hand held battery powered device.It would only add to the weight, size and power consumption of the device.What we need to seek is a cpu that produces the minimal possible heat output for its capabilities.
I think that having a heatsink to cover the entire ‘back’ of the phone (or where the blocks are located) would help to dissipate the heat accordingly. I’d have thought that removing the CPU and heatsink may be required to change blocks without a malfunction (possibly through turning off the device as well).
but an additional heatsink would make the phone thicker. and by the looks of it, it looks like its already 1 cm thick. i dont think a literal block for phonebloks is the way to go. it should be something slim to dispactch heat and so on. mabey place cpu block someplace where your hand rarely is? or something like that, and build in fan?
Either we can put another layer of heatsink component on top of the hardware components or place the CPU at the side of the base.
