thermo electric cooling

#2
No, but from what I've heard these Peltier plates are a bit unreliable. If they break they make for very good isolation! Plus they suck alot of power (70W is not unusual).

This kit is really no more than a Peltier plate with a fancontroller/powerconverter plus fans and heatsink.

What I've also heard is that "professional" overclockers stay away from Peltier plates.

If anyone else have heard of thinks differently, please post! The Peltier plates are a very interesting cooling idea IMO.

i've thought about getting one of those peltier plates for like $10 at an electronics store and trying it out. but the main issue is power. that could be easily solved by wiring it to an external ac adapter, though.

anyone ever tried one of those?

Should work just as well. Just remember to have a plate between the peltier and the CPU to spread the heat (as described in the first URL).

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
