Claim of US Patent No. 10,973,152

1. A cooling system, comprising:a first set of fans mounted on an inward-facing side of an air inlet on an outer shell of a case;
a second set of fans mounted on an inward-facing side of an air outlet on the outer shell of the case, for generating, in cooperation with the first set of fans, a high-pressure airflow from the air inlet to the air outlet;
a first heat sink connected to a heat generating component in the case, for absorbing heat from the heat generating component and transferring the absorbed heat to a second heat sink; and
the second heat sink mounted on an inward-facing side of the second set of fans and cooled by the high-pressure airflow,
wherein the first heat sink comprises at least one water cooling device each corresponding to a plurality of heat generating components and comprising a water tank and a water cooling pipe which goes through the plurality of heat generating components,
wherein the water cooling pipe has a water inlet and a water outlet each connected to the water tank, and
wherein the water cooling pipe is structured such to allow water to pass from the water tank to one heat generating component to the second het sink, and then pass from the heat sink to a next heat generating component.
