A water-cool radiator module comes with a supporting part having a shell body; the shell body includes a fan and a water tank; the water tank is connected to a cold water pipe and a hot water pipe; an extended section of the cold water pipe and hot water pipe is connected to a cold waterhead; the shell body includes several radiating holes at one end; such that in an application, the supporting part is inserted into a slot on the computer case and the shell body is mounted onto the slot; the cold water in the cold waterhead of a heat-generating electronic component is circulated to the shell body through the hot water pipe; the fan blows air to radiate heat to the outside through the radiating holes; and the cooled fluid flows from the water tank to the cold waterhead through the cold water pipe.
6. A water-cool radiator module, comprising:
a shell body, having an opening disposed on a surface of said shell body, and a radiating hole disposed on one side of said shell body;
a pump, installed inside said shell body and having a first hot water pipe and a second hot water pipe, and said first hot water pipe is in a continuous bending shape and connected to said pump and having an end interconnected with a water tank, and said first hot water pipe has a plurality of radiating fins aligned orderly on the bending section of said first hot water pipe, and the other end of said second hot water pipe is connected to a cold waterhead;
a water tank, being installed inside said shell body and connected to a cold water pipe and said first hot water pipe;
a fan, installed between said radiating fins and said pump and an opening of said fan faces said shell body;
a cold waterhead, connected to one side of said cold and second hot water pipes that is extended outside of said shell body;
a supporting part, installing said pump, a water tank, and said fan and being attached on said shell body, and one end of said supporting part is inserted into a slot in a computer; and
a fixing part, installed on another end of said supporting part for fixing said supporting part onto the backside of said computer case, and having an opening disposed on said fixing part at a position corresponding to said radiating holes; characterized in that: with the foregoing components, said water-cool radiator module can be fixed by said supporting member being inserted in said slot of said computer, and separate a heat-generating electronic component from said water tank, said radiating fins and said fan on said slot, such that said heat-generating electronic component needs not stand the weight of said water tank, radiating fins and fan and thus reducing the possibility of damaging said electronic component and reducing the space occupied by said heat-generating electronic component.

1. Field of the Invention
The present invention relates generally to a radiator module and, more specifically, a water-cool radiator module that is separated from heavy water tank, cold water pipe and hot water pipe that are independently fixed in a slot for the purpose to reduce the load on the heat-generating electronic components and not occupy the space of the electronic components.
2. Description of the Prior Art
Heretofore, it is known that a conventional radiator. As shown in
1. In addition to radiating fins 11, some water conduit accessories are also located under radiating fins 11. Such mechanism not only increases the height of the radiator structure but also increases the load on the heat-generating electronic components due to increased weight of water in water conduit. As a result, this may cause damage to such electronic component and occupies larger space.
2. Water in the water conduit stays and exchanges heat between radiating fins 11. Therefore, heat stays on radiating fins 11 resulting in very slow radiating speed.
3. Fan 30 is located on radiating fins 11. When fan 30 is activated, heat current will flow slowly through computer and then flow outward through the radiating holes outside the computer. As a result, heat may stay in the computer.
It is therefore a primary object of the invention to provide a water-cool radiator module that comprises a supporting part that further comprises a shell body; the shell body comprises a fan and a water tank; the water tank is connected to a cold water pipe and a hot water pipe; the extended section of the cold water pipe and hot water pipe connects to a cold waterhead; the shell body further comprises several radiating holes at one end; in practical application, the supporting part is fixed in a slot on the computer case and the shell body is firmly fixed on the slot; cold water on heat-generating electronic component is sent to the shell body via hot the water pipe; blown by the fan, heat is radiated outward via radiating holes; and cool fluid flows from the water tank to the cold waterhead via the cold water pipe. With repeated circulation, the heat produced by electronic component is taken away quickly. On the other hand, since the water tank, the radiating fins and the fan are all fixed on slot, the heat-generating electronic component does not bear the weight of the water tank, the radiating fins and the fan. As a result, this reduces the possibility of any damage to the heat-generating electronic component and saves space above the heat-generating electronic component.
It is still an object for the invention to provide a water-cool radiator module in which a pump is installed inside the shell body to speed up the flow of hot water in the hot water pipe and control the flow direction.
It is still another object for the invention to provide a water-cool radiator module in which a fixing part is installed near the radiating holes of the supporting part, several holes are on the fixing part; in practical application, the supporting part is inserted into the slot, the fixing part is fixed firmly on the computer case to have the shell body install more stable onto the slot without swaying.
The accomplishment of the above-mentioned object of the present invention will become apparent from the following description and its accompanying drawings which disclose illustrative an embodiment of the present invention, and are as follows:
