Apple launched the new M1 series of Macs last year. These Macs have a longer service life and better performance. On the other hand, Intel has been trying to make its chips as good as Apple’s, but we are not sure when these chips will be on the market. Now, a user who is tired of the noisy fan of the Intel MacBook Pro has installed an external water cooling system. Facts have proved that the system also performs better in terms of performance. Let’s see more details about the scenario and how it is implemented,
The user added an external cooling system to the MacBook Pro, and the end result is surprising
Compared with Apple’s M1 series MacBook, Intel models tend to be hot.One Mcrums Forum members used their talents to develop an external cooling system for the 15-inch MacBook Pro. He said that his Intel MacBook Pro became “disruptive” and the fan started to make noise even during video calls. The fans calmed down and performed better. The results were surprising.
In order to develop the external cooling system for the MacBook Pro, inexpensive parts were used, such as the Bitcoin ASIC secondary block from AliExpress, the Zalman radiator, the 2005 water tank and the Aquastream XT Ultra water pump. In addition, a number of transmissive thermal pads are installed between the metal shell of the chassis and the motherboard components, and these thermal pads will radiate heat from the machine.
After the equipment is ready, connect the thermal pad to the external water cooling system. Because the pump supports running Windows software, Theodoric must use a VM on a laptop. For monitoring, he used a Raspberry Pi and connected it to the system.According to users, “Normal desktop working conditions raise the water temperature from about 17-18ºC to 26ºC in about 6 hours.” After that, the external fan will start working and it will run at 700 RPM until the water cools. To 23ºC.
Although the process requires external hardware and software to work together, the end result is higher performance of the silent MacBook Pro. Apple will further improve the heat dissipation performance of its MacBook series in the future. For now. We expect to launch a new MacBook this year, so be sure to stick to all leaks and rumors.
