A computer (

2

) has a plurality of heat-producing components, including a microprocessor chip (

10

). A heat transfer device (

22

) through which a liquid coolant (C) is circulated is mounted in heat exchanging contact on the component (

10

). The device (

22

) may be mounted directly or via a Peltier thermoelectric cooler (

14

) positioned between the component (

10

) and the device (

22

). Coolant (C) from the device (

22

) is circulated to and through a reservoir (

42

) mounted on an inner mounting surface (

38

) of a radiator (

34

). The radiator (

34

) has heat dissipating fins (

40

) exposed to ambient air. The power supply (

6

) of the computer (

2

) is mounted directly on the mounting surface (

38

) so that heat produced by the power supply (

6

) will be dissipated by the radiator (

34

). Preferably, a plurality of transistors (

66

) of the power supply (

6

) are mounted on the mounting surface (

38

) separately from the mounting board (

64

) of the power supply

6

).
