The processor. More correctly, the CPU (Central Processing

Unit). It's almost always located underneath a vaned metal block

known as a heatsink, generally near the top and to the aft of the

case. Components used primarily processing: * Processor or

CPU (Cental Processing Unit), the computer's most important chip *

Chipset that supports the processor by controlling many motherboard

activities
