PC Casing air flow
 
Hi guys,

I am new here.

Anyway, I wanted to simulate the air flow in the PC and analyse its cooling effect. Due to skill and time constraint, I assume that the heat sink in PC is started at 340K with all the PC air flow flowing through. (I didn't model the CPU package)

My question is, besides energy and model (laminar, inviscid, k-epsilon), is there any function I need to turn on to see the cooling effect?

I did some real test using my own PC, I stress the CPU until 340K then put it in idle and let it cool for 30sec to 1min. I use this result as verification.

Thanks guy
