A CPU Cooler is a device that keeps your processor temperature in check and prevents it from overheating. Every CPU or processor comes with CPU cooler at the time of purchase.

And if you are a performance enthusiast, overclocker or a hardcore gamer then you will be requiring a good aftermarket cooler to keep your CPU temperature down.
