Duringa recent visit to MSI here in Taiwan, we learnt of an interesting andnew technology which they are working on with another Taiwanese companycalled Polo-Tech. It all falls under their ECO friendly design program.

It is still very much a work in progress but from the working conceptdesign we saw in action at the MSI HQ, it is probably not far off frombecoming a reality – we hope so too. What are we talking about hereanyway? Since power saving is such a hotly discussed topic, MSI hasemployed the Stirling Engine Theory to power a cooling fan without theneed of conventional electricity.

Heat is transferred from the motherboard northbridge chipset andthrough the Stirling Engine Theory it is able to spin the cooling fanand cool down the heatsink. MSI commented that they would probably endup adding the world’s first powerless air cooler to an Nvidiamotherboard, which everyone found rather amusing.

MSI sent us over a demonstration video of how the theory works in practice and I uploaded it to YouTube.


Good on you MSI – we’ll save this planet one PC at a time if we must!
