MSI (Micro-Star International) has developed the cooler boost technology to optimize the cooling process for laptops used for gaming and other intensive applications.
Laptops are sophisticated electronic devices. Hardware is embedded in a sleek and slender chassis. No doubt laptops are designed to cool down the temperature, but still when you overuse the device, the CPU and GPU produce a considerable amount of heat, enough to damage sensitive hardware.
This is the reason manufacturers have come up with advancements in technologies to improve the laptop cooling system.
Cooler Boost technology is designed by MSI. It is a software in which by pressing a single button, you will be able to increase fan speed and immediately cool down your laptop. Isn’t it incredible? In simple words, MSI Cooler Boost Technology helps to cool down their gaming laptop series and prevent the device from overheating more efficiently.
MSI cooler boosts have all the key features of the cooling system. The design is specifically made to facilitate a cooling system. Cooler Boost technology includes both software and hardware advancement to optimize the cooling of a laptop. Hardware modification is mainly in the speed of the fan and the size of the heat pipes. It also has thermal intelligence technology. The new version of it which is Cooler Boost 5 Technology uses 7 thermal pipes to maximize the cooling efficiency.
Fans in cooler Boost technology are designed to eliminate extra heat generated from the hot compartments. MSI Cooler Boost has powerful and efficient fans, they work together with heat pipes and other cooling components to ensure maximum hot air is circulated out. Cooling fans are a major component of MSI cooler boost 4 technology.
In the setup of the MSI Cooler boost, you can manually adjust the speed of the fan. I have seen that if you set the fan speed to maximum rpm, it can cool down your laptop within 20 seconds. Due to an intelligent fan curve, it can detect any rise in temperature and immediately increase the fan speed thus preventing the device from overheating or thermal throttling
Heat pipes are made of copper, with a conducting material closed within. As said above, in the newer version, roughly 7 heat pipes are available at the targeted site. Heat pipes are designed to dissipate heat from hot compartments and circulate it to the heat sinks. Fans and pipes work in harmony. Heat pipes are spread all over the chassis, they make every component protected from the damage of overheating.
The Thermal paste acts like a synapse between a component and a heat sink, sometimes between heat pipes and a heat sink. Thermal paste facilitates the transfer of heat to the heat sink. In MSI Cooler Boost Technology, Nvidia Approved Thermal Paste is used on their line of gaming laptops.
Laptop Air vents are like ventilators. They tend to eliminate hot air from the chassis, and let the cool air in. In this way, they are responsible for air circulation, which ultimately helps the laptop cooling system. In Cooler Boost Technology, MSI designs a laptop chassis with 3 exhausts to eliminate hot air in milliseconds.
Key Features of MSI Cooler Boost Technology
A key feature of MSI Cooler Boost Technology is the ability to control the speed of cooling fans, larger heat pipes, and efficient ways to circulate hot air and keep the device cool during intensive use. The main feature is to adjust the speed of the fan, especially in gaming laptops where the GPU and CPU generate a considerable amount of heat.
One of the key features is thermal intelligence, Due to this feature you can see the real-time temperature of components on your monitor screen. Knowing about temperatures, you can manually increase the speed of the fan in that particular section. In this way, heat generated from certain components is easily and efficiently dissipated out of the device.
Benefits of MSI Cooler Boost Technology
The benefits of MSI Cooler Boost Technology are remarkable. If you own a MSI gaming laptop, you would know how important it is to cool down a laptop, because thermal throttling and overheating can cause damage to your device. The ultimate benefit of cooler Boost technology is to optimize the efficiency of hardware by cooling down a laptop.
The benefit is incomparable as this technology is user-friendly and easy to operate, you can monitor the temperature of different components on your screen and thereby increase the speed of the fan as you desire.
Technically by adjusting the cooling fan to maximum rpm, you can cool down your laptop in literally 20 seconds. Amazing right? That’s why Cooler Boost technology is one of the best cooling systems for gaming laptops.
List of Versions and Updates
MSI Cooler Boost technology has been upgraded to Cooler Boost 5. This upgrade has more cooling fans and heat pipes as compared to cool Boost 4 technology. Latest GTX, RTX, Ryzen, and CPU support cooler boost 5 technology in MSI Gaming Laptops such as MSI Raider GE67Hx. Cooler Boost 5 has 4 cooling fans and 7 heat pipes. This allows the device to dissipate heat quickly and more efficiently. The latest version is said to have an ultimate tendency to increase the lifespan and durability of the product. No doubt it has brought the laptop cooling system to the next level.
