How to Use Maximum CPU Power in Windows 10

What is CPU?

Those who are computer geeks may be aware of what is CPU however for those who don’t know what CPU is, let me give you a brief idea about it.

(CPU) also known as the central processing unit is the brain of the computer which performs most of the processing tasks inside a computer. To control and process instructions and data flow, the CPU relies severely on the chip set, which is an assembly of microchips placed on the motherboard.

The CPU has two major components:

Control Unit: Extracts instructions from memory and decodes and executes them

Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU): Handles arithmetic and logical operations

The CPU relies on the system clock, secondary storage, memory, data and address buses to function properly.

What are CPU Coolers?

A CPU cooler is a device which looks like a mini fan, is designed to pull out heat away from the system CPU and other components in the unit. Earlier computers used to come with only one CPU Cooler however nowadays, Cabinets comes with 2-3 CPU Coolers installed for swift performance. Using a CPU cooler to lower down CPU temperature improves the productivity and stability of the system. Adding a CPU cooler can increase the overall noise level of the system.
