MSI ECOlution press event from Taipei

Last week we attend a small CeBIT preview for the press in Taiwan were MSI talked a bit about ECOlution, which is MSI’s take on being more environmentally friendly among other things. Possibly the most exciting of the things shown in terms of what was easy to make out was their prototype CPU fan which uses a technology similar to a sterling engine which we told you about here. Now we’ve gotten around to uploading a short video we shot at the event which will give you a better idea of what it looks like in action.

The noise you’re hearing is actually from the fan itself, but MSI reassured us that this was only a prototype issue and that production fans should be quiet, due to different materials being used and a better manufacturing process being applied. This was of course far from the only thing on show and we’ve got pictures of a fair few other things to show you. First up we have a couple of pictures of MSI’s EFI BIOS and it looks like a cracking way of access and changing all the BIOS options. Our Editor, Cameron Wilmot had a quick go as you can see from the picture below, although we weren’t allowed to change any of the settings.
