For my setup it already update…

Here is the command how to update the pciid

root@ubuntu:~# update-pciids

Downloaded daily snapshot dated     2008-11-20 03:15:02

and u can find the Device using the PCI ID…

New Extreme ChipsNew Extreme Chipset Cooler From MSI

MSI just release out the new Powerless Air Cooler on Mobo
They claim it can decrease 70% heat transfer

More detail about the Stirling Engine!

• The history of the Stirling engine.
– The Stirling engine theory and prototype was invented during1600’s.
– In 1816, Robert Stirling of Scotland revised and then make it as “economizer”.
– With that addition the early age air engines started to use Stirling’s idea.
– Many other applications adopted the principle of the Stirling engine to replace existing applications.

• The theory of the Stirling engine.
– The Stirling engine, cycles through four main processes: cooling, compression, heating and expansion.
– This is accomplished by moving the gas back and forth between hot and cold heat exchangers.
– The hot heat exchanger is in thermal contact with an external heat source, e.g. Chipset, and the cold heat exchanger being in thermal contact with an external heat sink.
– The heat transferred the outside becomes air heat and pushes up the inside pump.
– The warm air cools, and the inside pump falls down again.
– The cycle restarts again.

• Usages of the Stirling engine.
– The striling engine is still used in some submarines and to power toy airplanes.
– The evolution of the Stirling engine has become a replacement energy solution.
– Heat transfer power, small electrical generator and internal power engine.

• Advantages of the Stirling engine.
– Max transfer rate over 70% heat transfer capability, solar power is only 20~30%.
– Smaller size than solar power, only heat, no extra fuel needed when working.
– Lower total cost and continued power output with continued heat resource.
