Find the brains to your computer with processors from Harvey Norman
Whether you’re playing high-performance computer games, creating video content or downloading huge amounts of data, you’ll need a computer processor that mirrors your needs. Also known as the brains to your setup, a PC processor (CPU) is the part of the computer that performs actions and runs programs. Whatever you’re using it for, you’ll want a CPU that’s powerful enough to last you a long time. With equipment from some of the best brands in Australia, Harvey Norman has a fantastic selection of processors to fulfil your needs.
For PC gaming you’ll want a multi-core processor to run resource-heavy applications smoothly. AMD processors provide exceptional performance and are one of the leaders in the market, as well as offering great value.
When you’ve chosen the right AMD processor for you, the small yet powerful chip will be placed on to the motherboard to interact with the other components to operate your PC. You’ll need to choose a motherboard that is compatible with your CPU, a key thing to note when you’re building a PC for the first time. If the processor is the brain to your computer, the motherboard is the nervous system, connecting all the components such as graphics cards, RAM and the hard drive.
Another key component to factor into your PC setup and to keep your processor running at optimum levels for longer is water cooling. Gaming marathons can place additional demands on your processor and cause it to get very hot. The warmer the components get, the harder they work which can shorten the lifespan of your PC. To avoid damaging your equipment, it is essential to install a good water cooler to absorb the heat.
