Case provides physical protection to the computer components and their chosen size is dependent on the mother board dimensions. So, computer manufacturers design and build customized cases.
Motherboard comprises of the embossed circuitry where several devices get connected to serve the purpose. Usually the components are permanently fixed such as Complementary metal-oxide semiconductors (CMOS), some are replaceable, and few additional memory slots are allowed to add-in additional memory when it is required. In addition, a provision of ports does enable users to plug-in external devices.
A lot of activity bustles at the Central Processing Unit, seldom referred as main component to compute the user’s request. The microprocessor is devised with 32-bit and 64-bit pins and they establish the need of CPU architectures built by Intel and AMD. Before any data put to process, it is placed on a memory for short time randomly called as random-access memory (RAM). Drives are the disks where data is permanently stored and they can be modified as well. Computer users’ can make use of, any of the drive controller technology, the former one quoting the IDE standards and later SATA standard. In addition to, computers have the provision of optical drives that enable read and write features on the storage devices like floppy, compact disc, digital video display, etc.
Almost every computer component that is integrated on the motherboard can withstand only certain level of heat while it’s functioning. And any overheat can cause severe damage to the components. In order to maintain uninterrupted computer work, manufacturers make use a metallic sink to absorb excessive heat if any. Computer games or any long run programs do contribute greater heat and this does force users to use additional cooling devices.
However, there are many online PC parts companies to sell spares. Users may fast approach such websites for immediate technical support when computer components fail to respond.
