Caption: Microchip processor heat sink (centre), seen against a circuit board background. This metal heat sink was produced by extrusion, and has three rows of fins either side. It is designed to remove the heat generated by a CPU (central processing unit) microchip, to which it would be attached. The finned surface increases the area in contact with the surrounding air, making the heat exchange more efficient and lowering the temperature of the CPU.
