Cooling performance enhancement of computer liquid cooling (LC) systems using hexagonal boron nitride (hBN)–water nanofluids is investigated experimentally. Particle volume fractions of 0.1–2% are considered at constant flow rates varying from 0.3 to 2 L/min for two different cold plates (CPs), with and without fins. A commercial closed-loop LC system is also tested to examine performance of hBN–water nanofluids at constant pumping power. It was observed that the thermal performance can be improved by using hBN nanofluids, and higher improvements are achieved for systems with limited convection rates.
