This study presents convective single-phase and boiling two-phase heat transfer performance of HFE-7100 coolant within multi-port microchannel heat sinks. The corresponding hydraulic diameters are 450 and 237 μm, respectively. For single-phase results, the presence of inlet/outlet locations inevitably gives rise to considerable increase of total pressure drop of a multi-port microchannel heat sink whereas has virtually no detectable influence on overall heat transfer performance provided that the effect of entrance has been accounted for. The convective boiling heat transfer coefficient for the HFE-7100 coolant shows a tremendous drop when vapor quality is above 0.6. For Dh = 450 μm, it is found that the mass flux effect on the convective heat transfer coefficient is rather small.
