Boost Computer Performance with the LGA 775 CPU Cooler

If you run a business that requires much multitasking, you need your computers to work without freezing or crashing. You can maintain fast production speeds when keeping your CPU sockets cool.

What is an LGA 775 CPU cooler?

This Land Grid Array CPU cooling part, otherwise known as the Socket T, regulates your processor temperature using a fan and heatsink. An LGA 775 CPU cooler fits sockets that have 775 contacts on its bottom. This temperature regulation part usually keeps your computer at about 70 degrees for making sure your computer runs the way it should.

What LGA 775 cooler features help keep a CPU cool?

A fan and attached heatsink provide different ways of regulating your machine's temperature. These CPU cooler parts usually have these capabilities:

  • Automated fan speed adjustment: This usually is accomplished with the use of PWM technology. When temperatures rise above 70 degrees, the blades spin faster to a maximum of about 2,400-2,600 RPMs.
  • Multiple heatpipes: In addition to heatsinks, many CPU coolers also have at least 3-4 heatpipes attached to them. This allows for increased ability to pull heat from a processor that the fan will force out of your computer through a vent.
  • Liquid or sleeve bearing systems: These types provide about two to three years of use depending on how many hours per day you run your machine. Ball bearings are another alternative that also last awhile but only if they're kept lubricated.
  • Silent or low noise: This allows you to work on projects without much interference. You also can watch videos or even play games when not working without hearing humming or vibrations. At the same time, your fan does its work.

What processors take the LGA Socket T coolers?

They fit some Intel Pentium 4 processors that operate at about 2.60-3.73 GHz. The Socket T coolers also work with some Core 2 Duo, Extreme, and Quad as well as Xeon and Celeron processors. This allows you to run graphic art programs, hold employee web conferences, and perform document tasks without slowing down your computer. Even if just using your machine for watching movies or gaming, the cooler will keep your computer performing without screen freezes or crashing.

Where is an LGA CPU cooler usually located?

This motherboard component usually is mounted on your LGA 775 socket with screws or clips and sometimes with a soldering gun. Thermal paste is also sometimes added with this part for extra protection against overheating.
