In this study, the concept of the thermal module of LEDs cooling by use of drilled hole to entrain air flow was examined. It is found that the drilled hole does not necessarily improve the overall performance. It depends on the size of the drilled hole, the number of drilled holes, and the locations. The heat transfer coefficients are generally increased with the number of drilled holes and the diameter of the drilled hole. In this paper, the plate fin heat sink has a higher heat transfer coefficients than pin fins, but the overall performance of the LED panel having pin fin outperforms that of plate fin. This is because the pin fin provides much larger surface area. For decrease the maximum temperature of the LED panel, placement of the drilled holes along the hot region will be more effective.
