A fanless computer is a computer that does not have any fans. This makes them completely silent, which is ideal for use in libraries, offices, and other places where noise is a concern. However, fanless computers can be more difficult to cool than computers with fans.
The CPU is the brain of the computer, and it generates a lot of heat. In a fanless computer, the CPU must be cooled without the use of fans. This cooling can be assisted by limiting the CPU's wattage.
There are a few different ways to limit the CPU's wattage in a fanless computer. The most common way is to use the BIOS or UEFI settings.
To limit the CPU's wattage in the BIOS or UEFI, you will need to access the settings menu. The exact steps for doing this will vary depending on your computer's motherboard, but you will typically need to press a certain key during the boot process, such as F2, F10, or Delete.
Once you have access to the settings menu, look for the option to change the CPU's wattage. This option may be called "Power Management" or something similar. Once you have found the option, change the value to the desired wattage.
This will help to keep the CPU cool without sacrificing too much performance.
CPU wattage limitation is a necessary step in ensuring the longevity and performance of your fanless computer. By limiting the CPU's wattage, you can help to keep it cool, reduce noise, and increase energy efficiency.
