About 40mm x 50mm by my estimations. Probably a bit bigger though.

EDIT: 67 x 50mm.

That's great! That means I can pretty easily fit a 226w pelt underneath it!

Funnily enough, I have a Tower 112

You're right, it could do well- you'd need to mill the lip off the base, though.

You think it'd be able to cope with a 226w peltier at 5 volts?

What is this "lip" to which you refer? What are the dimensions of the Tower112's baseplate?

Considering there's an air-cooled TEC for sale with a much less capable cooler than the Tower112 (see the link in my sig), I don't see why it wouldn't work.

i wonder if with a TT armor you could reverse the airflow on your sidefan and BT and set all other fans to intake, so i have lots of air pouring in over they components and the BT and sidefan taking it out?

I'm like the inquirer, take everything i say with a grain of salt.
SLi Zone PSU listing- check to see if your PSU is SLi certified.

I'd say set it up just like you would "normally" except take into account the BT acting as an exhaust fan. You want slightly more air trying to push in than is getting sucked out (reduces dust and increases cooling efficiency).

For example, say all of your 120mm fans are of equal design and CFM. You'd want 2 front intakes, 1 rear exhaust, 1 side exhaust (BT) and your PSU as exhaust. I'd say that'd be pretty much as "optimum" as it could possibly get without a "straight through" ducting design with a tower heatsink. That takes into consideration the "resistance" that the heatsink itself has to airflow through your BT exhaust fan.

Also remember that when ducting hot air out of a case, you don't want any air leaks. That will throw off your airflow/pressure and allow hot air to "recirculate" through the heatsink. It would be about the same (if not worse) than "normal" cooling. **been there, done that**

There is a small lip machined into the base, I don't know why, but it exists, it would need to be milled off to allow the TEC to make full contact.

It's less than 1/16th of an inch, so it's not too big, it would mill off quite well. I could do it when I get my mill running, too.

It definately seems to have the most heat dissipating capability, but the way it's built makes the fans point "up" on my motherb0ard and wouldn't help me any with my ducting.
