I went to my PC home page to find a description of hardware and for my PC model and here it what it says:

" Higher specs mean hotter running temperature - but Sony's VAIO® RA Series has an advanced liquid cooling system that handles heat with ease. A unique liquid-flow heat-pipe draws heat away from the processor, eliminating noisy fans and allowing for ample performance. This advanced technology is a generational leap above the competition. As a result, the VAIO® RA Series ensures ultimate performance that you can count on."

does this means that my computer have liquid inside instead of a fan?

Nope, the liquid should technically last forever.

If you want to learn about how watercooling works, here's a good starting point: http://www.pantherproducts.co.uk/Articl ... l#Overview

"A unique liquid-flow heat-pipe" - Sorry to tell you, but you have a normal heatsink and fan PC. Heatpipes work by having a solid in them that liquifies at a very low temperature. These heat-pipes take heat away from the processor to a heatsink quite far away, this makes heat-pipe technology very usefull in laptops and SFF PC's.

"liquid cooling system" is a bad way to advertise heat-pipe cooling lol.
