    • fendermon
      fendermon Day ago +1

      @Śaṅkarācārya No worries....I came out aggressive :)
      Apple does do some odd things for sure. I just bought a Raspberry Pi that runs plenty hot until it is in a proper case with a fan ..which is attached to nothing but its wires. That's partially why this interests me. Airflow amount and direction is crucial. Apple couldn't even agree a mouse should be conventional (with two buttons) or how to make a good keyboard, so I can see why people would be skeptical of them on something as important as cooling. - Cheers

    • Śaṅkarācārya
      Śaṅkarācārya Day ago

      @fendermon apologies for my aggressiveness before.
      Yes, they are, however they have time and again proven how dumb they can be with trashcan Mac, butterfly keyboard, a mouse that charges upside down, a stylus which charges in a weird way.
      See, the performance is better when additional cooler is applied. Agreed that this is true for all laptops if they are liquid cooled. The point here is, they could have made the fan near the CPU, even if it meant 2% extra performance, but they didn't.
      Yup, unless we both take a close look and it's working, my guess is as good as yours.

    • fendermon
      fendermon Day ago

      @Śaṅkarācārya I haven't studied the air flow path through it. I'm just assuming Apple engineers are smarter than a monkey and can make the air enter and exit with a path that goes over the CPU. As to the video link...I didn't say the cooling was great in stock form, I just think people are blowing the issue out of proportion. I may be wrong; I would have to have it in front of me to see the actual air flow path. Thanks for your reply.

    • Śaṅkarācārya
      Śaṅkarācārya Day ago

      If what you said was true, why was MacBook Air 2020 performing better with an extra heatsink, if the inbuilt fan is enough?

    • Śaṅkarācārya
      Śaṅkarācārya Day ago

      Er, no it's not.
      If you're sucking air and throwing it out, the air takes the path of least resistance.
      The air goes inside that circle and blows out from the side.
      If all you have to do is to get a lot of air, where would most of the air come from? Hint: See the immediate space around the fan, so much of unrestricted space which connects directly from outside.
      Aerodynamics is not as easily explained as you think. You can try running a simulation if that's what you want to believe.

  • Angus Dorbie
    Angus Dorbie 5 days ago

    The fan blows air out of the case, that causes air from an opening on the other side of the case to be drawn in and over the heat sink on its way to the blower. It's case level active cooling for lower power CPUs. Might not be so great as they beef up the specs on the Air CPU options, it might also be impeded not just by a blockage but also if another part of the case allows in too much air to be drawn in instead of the intended inlet.

    Their concept is to pull air thru the whole laptop and out the fan acting as a blower, however as the laptop build dust and dirt on the inside the cooling capacity drastically drops and you can’t dissipate the heat fast enough. Which eventually burns the cpu.

    Apple figured that if they placed a fan in an arrangement where it drew air through the 'closed' case aerodynamic channels, it would be sufficient to provide optimal cooling..

  • Carter Baumhoer
    Carter Baumhoer 24 days ago

    It seems to me, just maybe, that apple is trying to have the fans pressure pull air in the opposite vent and have it exhaust beside/alongside the fans forced air? Maybe that's why the fins are so spaced out? I can't imagine why that would be a more effective cooling solution, though...?
    I can't remember the name of this process. Something in my head is screaming air entrainment but I doubt that's it. Same principle of a Dyson bladeless fan I think. The tiny jets pull the entire inside of the circles worth of air.
    Edit: I say this because the exhaust of the fan only takes up what looks like 60% of the exhaust port on the chassis. Leaving the other 40% for the suedo-suction/entrainment/whatever.

  • RetroGames1979
    RetroGames1979 24 days ago

    The case is used as the pathway for the air. The air is sucked into the top of the fan. When the case is on it will suck air across the CPU, notice the direction of the heat sink fins.

    Well the UK may be out of the EU now, but Apple will eventually be hauled over the coals by the EU over their disgraceful methods of ensuring repeat business. They have just been fined a huge amount (still not enough apparently|) for their crass and frankly ridiculous attempt to con users by deliberately slowing older machines with software updates! As far as I'm concerned, Apple (since Woz the genius engineer left and Jobs the Muppet marketer was left in charge, went away and came back) is good for NOTHING except conning the world with their newest set of "Emperor's robes") into believing they have the best products! Bullcr*p! As a graduate electronic engineer of over 45 years standing it incenses me when I see BLATANT engineering disasters in the making and Apple seems to have way more than their fair share.
    WHY does anyone still believe their BS? Microsoft couldn't build a decent OS to save their lives, Intel is STILL producing inferior CPUs cf AMD and Apple is STILL producing the latest junk. When will they stop selling utterly irrelevant "sizzle" and start selling the actual "sausage" instead??

    Okay, so how exactly is getting hot air from a thin laptop like this one, from a passive heatsink through a fan out of the device wrong or what exactly does Louis or the rest of the geniuses here complain about? I presume you'd all want to stack that fan on top of the heatsink and that'd be ok? Ofcourse everyone at Apple is a mindless idiot and just arbitrairly stick fans in the Macbook Airs. Surely no one at Apple thought about making the CPU with a passive heatsink efficient enough for the external fan to be sufficient for the purpose of the device being extremely thin, Luis knows better. I think Luis needs to start his own laptop/phone manufacturing company, he seems much more competent than the idiots at Apple.
