Chillers are well known refrigerators which add a cooling effect to the samples or even the processes so as to preset the temperatures by removing the effect of heat from the application device.

Thanks for the information

Good information ! Can be improved with pictures or illustrations as examples.
ie How to arrange cables for better air flow, where to place fans for different cases, where to find copper vs aluminum heat sinks (I have been looking for a good copper heat sink for my computer - fastest way to improve cooling) also good heat pipes help. Knowing what to do is good, knowing how to do it is great.
** For straight text without illustrations, you did very well. Good article **

Thank You

Additional Comment:

The life of an electronic device is directly related to its operating temperature. Each 10°C (18°F) temperature rise reduces component life by 50%*. Conversely, each 10°C (18°F) temperature reduction increases component life by 100%. Therefore, it is recommended that computer components be kept as cool as possible (within an acceptable noise level) for maximum reliability, longevity, and return on investment.
* Based on the Arrhenius equation, which says that time to failure is a function of e-Ea/kT where Ea = activation energy of the failure mechanism being accelerated, k = Boltzmann’s constant, and T = absolute temperature.

depends on the case and fan arrangement while proper fan placement and air flow will always win

leaving the side panel off can help when fans are either really low cfm, or just not cutting it ive proved this with my case
