In recent years we have undergone a revolution in terms of the aesthetics of the PC involved. We left behind 5.25-inch rails, got smooth and noisy cables, RGB replaced it as the unprecedented surprise in the PC industry, and through windows and glass it took charge and chassis.
The invention is obvious, but from a fuel efficiency point of view, is it up to date? Is the PC industry the best or is it just a great pool for our products?
Warm glass: acoustic, thermal and safety in advance?
As we have seen, PC manufacturers currently do not specify the vast majority of cases of what kind of hot glass they use in concrete, which is a huge unknown to assess their quality and whether we really pay for what the manufacturer wants.
The type of sound glass is especially important when we have a heat source as large as a CPU heatsink or graphics card, especially when the latter is directly inserted.
Board manufacturers have a handicap that means the GPU is plugged into the PCIe, so the designs look for a third-party heat shock that can come 90 degree, and therefore increase the strength of the materials and welds at these points and protect the critical material or nearby chips.
Leaving this aside, is heated glass a real success? For acoustics not, safety is a clear step forward, but what about burnout?
It may seem trivial, but for crystals this is determined by the concept we all know: hot rays, also called radiation of heat.
Heat radiation is essential to achieve better temperatures in PC
The concept of heat radiation is understood to come from the point of view of the type of radiation that emits a body or object due to its heat. In this direction, the choice of warm glass is essential to the temperature present inside the chasi
To achieve the best thermal performance, manufacturers must assemble a wire low crystal emissivity, also known as low-grade irradiation glass. This type of glass is used in the construction of houses to get the best possible energy certificate, because it allows the sun's rays to pass through and the heat it emits, but it doesn't let it out.
This concept used on a PC is simply a back-up, manufacturers should use this type of low-barrier glass to allow heat to be transferred out of the chassis and instead not allow it to go back inside.
Its appearance is similar to that of any other glass and can be made from any of the glass forms we have already seen in another article.
The problem is that manufacturers are installing this type of glass on PCs, they have to choose to use their own system, which requires an air chamber between the two of them.
It is only in this way that the maximum transmission value of K 1.8 W / m2K and because of this we are able to increase the heat gain and gain the temperature in our parts. It could be the future of PC cases, which with great certainty will manage to reduce the size of the glass and allow for lower internal temperatures in the chassis.
