MSI just release out the new Powerless Air Cooler on Mobo
They claim it can decrease 70% heat transfer
MSI presents the “Air Power Cooler” chipset cooler with ECO
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.
