Stirling Engine concept for Northbridge

 

MSI is going to show yet another "green" thing as a part of its ECOlution campaign, powerless "Air Power Cooler" chipset cooler based on the Stirling Engine theory.

The cooler practically transfers the chipset heat into air momentum. The expansion of the hot air inside the cooler's base will make the fan rotate. This is a simple, yet clever, design based on the Stirling Engine theory, invented during the 17th century. Since it uses no external power, this is the perfect candidate for MSI´s ECOlution show.

The entire concept looks good, but we will have to wait for CeBIT to see how well it performs.
