I was wondering how does liquid cooling work to cool the computer

Liquid cooling is essentially a radiator for the CPU inside of the computer. Just like a radiator for a car, a liquid cooling system circulates a liquid through a heat sink attached to the processor inside of the computer. As the liquid passes through the heat sink, heat is transferred from the hot processor to the cooler liquid. The hot liquid then moves out to a radiator at the back of the case and transfers the heat to the ambient air outside of the case. The cooled liquid then travels back through the system to the CPU to continue the process.

There is no better way I can explain it.

liquid cooling uses thermodynamics where the heat moves from cooler objects to hotter objects so there's a circulating cold liquid passes through a heatsink which warms the liquid then brings it to a colder object similar to a radiator which cools and the process cycles FOREVER!
