An internal reflow pump
is a type of pump used in liquid cooling systems for electronic devices such as computers. The pump is located inside the water block, which is attached to the processor, graphics card, or other components that require cooling.
The purpose of the internal reflow pump is to circulate the cooling liquid through the water block, which helps to transfer heat away from the components and dissipate it into the surrounding environment. The pump moves the liquid from the water block through the tubing and into the radiator, where the liquid is cooled before returning to the water block to repeat the cycle.
The advantage of using an internal reflow pump is that it can provide more efficient and reliable cooling compared to other cooling solutions. This is because the pump is located directly in the water block, which helps to reduce the distance that the cooling liquid needs to travel and minimize the risk of leaks or other issues.
Additionally, the internal reflow pump can be quieter and more compact than other types of cooling solutions, such as external pumps or air-cooling fans. This can help to reduce noise and free up space in the computer case.
However, internal reflow pumps
can also have some limitations. They may require more complex installation and maintenance compared to other types of cooling solutions, and they may be more expensive. Additionally, they may not be suitable for all types of computer configurations or cooling requirements.
