MSI has unveiled the MEG CoreLiquid S series of liquid cooling systems developed in collaboration with Asetek. The series includes two models with aluminum radiators 280 mm and 360 mm long. The radiators are equipped with low-noise MSI MEG Silent Gale fans that turn on only when needed, and a 2.4-inch IPS display is built into the pump cover. The 7th generation Asetek pump features improved leakage resistance and increased durability.

The blades of the aforementioned fans are made of Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP), a dense plastic with a low coefficient of thermal expansion. Their shape ensures maximum airflow. The rotor is supported by a hydrodynamic bearing to reduce noise and increase service life. Anti-vibration bushings are pressed in the corners of the fan frame. The rotation speed is adjustable in the range of 0-2000 rpm. The maximum speed corresponds to a flow of 95.54 m3/ h and a noise level of 22.7 dBA.

Samsung mobile head Tae Moon Roh (TM Roh) confirmed that he has made two work visits to the United States this year to obtain more stocks of chips and application processors needed to make smartphones.

According to TheElec, Tae Moon Ro met with major component manufacturers in the US to get more chips and asked major partners to increase shipments for the South Korean tech giant. However, according to sources close to this, the trips did not end as Samsung planned.

The first trip was made in March, the second took place in July. The source also added that the president of Samsung Mobile visited the headquarters of the global SoC maker in July and asked for additional chips, but was ultimately denied.

The component maker responded to Tae Moon Ro that the company also wants to increase its total supply, but cannot yet increase shipments for Samsung.
