Small Ceramic or metal component with fins on its surface that absorbs and ventilates heat produced by electrical projects. The pace of a system clock is called the clock speed, it is measured by the number of ticks per second.
Tells the computer what actions to do and not do. The speed by which these tasks are accomplished depends on the computer processor’s speed.
Small ceramic or metal components with fins on its surface that absorbs and ventilates heat produced by electrical components. Some are part of the processor chip, some are on the top are side of the chip.
Small cooling device used to cool processors in notebook computers. Smaller than the heat sinks.
A continuous flow of fluid such as water and glycol. Process that transfers the heated fluid away from the processor to cool the liquid and then returns the cooled fluid to the processor.
Processing method that uses multiple processors simultaneously to execute a single program or task. Some use dual core processors or multiple core processors
Component of the system unit that converts wall outlet AC power to the DC power that is used by a computer. If the power supply is not providing the necessary power, the computer will not function properly
Opening inside the system unit in which additional equipment can be installed. A bay is different from a slot. Rectangular openings called drive bays typically hold disk drives.
PIC bus- Peripheral Component Interconnect Bus: is a high speed expansion bus that connects higher speed devices AGP- Accelerated Graphics Port: is a buss designed by Intel to provide the speed with which 3D graphics and video transmit. USB- Universal Serial Bus and FireWire bus are buses that eliminate the need to install cards in expansion slots.
Electronic channel that transfers electronic bits internally within the circuitry of a computer, allowing the devices both inside and attached to the system unit to communicate with each other.
