  • Patent number: 10306807
    Abstract: Enhanced cooling for electronic components within a computing device is provided. Blowers are preferably leveraged as air movers, and an airflow deflection surface (preferably configured as a ramp) is disposed within a plenum to guide airflow under an electronic component (such as a hard disk drive or solid state drive), the electronic component being placed in an inverted alignment whereby a surface having a higher heat transfer rate is facing down (toward the blower), and then into an intake of the blower. Air output from the blower may then pass into a downstream plenum formed at least in part by the blower, an inverted downstream electronic component, and a support member thereof, thus providing serial cooling of the downstream component. Anti-recirculation flaps are preferably disposed at the air output of the blower.
