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:
