This paper presents fined plate minichannel heat sink numerically under forced convection. Two geometries, flat plate and fined plat heat sinks have been drawn by solidworks, then imported to Starccm+ for simulation. The plate was 45 mm width and 55mm length and the fined heat sink has fins with 3 mm height and 1 mm thickness.Source load 325 W at the bottom of heat sink ad different volumetric flow rate 0.5, 0.75 and 1 liter per minute are used to simulate the microprocessor. The results have shown that fins heat sink has more heat transfer rate, 194.3 watts at 1 liter per minute. Moreover, thermal resistance and base temperature reduced 58 % and 30.7 % compared to flat plate respectively. The results have shown excellent agreement with published experiments.
