    MSI going on-board watercooling.

    Following ASUS, MSI appear to have taken the plunge into watercooling.

    Although it's not only the NB this time, they have done the MOSFETS and SB too, but the water will be passed through the heatpipes. Which look nice and small around 1/4" and along with some nice right angle bends to really kill your flow.

    Surely just plain ol' pipes

    I wonder if in 4 years time if water cooling will be the norm rather than the exception?

    Looks cool. I like the way there are camouflaged green and orange memory sockets. They can be seen in some shots but not others.
