In this study, the air flow inside a PC is simulated to determine the optimal arrangement of the external fans that allows the greatest cooling in the computer’s processor. The equipment and fans are fully determined, and there are three possible air inlets / outlets. The results show that the highest cooling is obtained for the placement of two outlet fans (upper and rear side) and one inlet (lower side).
