I was until my mobo crapped out. I think I was running too much voltage through the chipset (1.7v lol).

I had my TEC/3000+ Winchester at 2.6Ghz for over a year 24/7 with no problems. The electricity bill didn't go up more than a few bucks.

Can you fill the tubes? If so, put alcohol into the tubes, that solves your icing problem...But you may want to preserve the evaporative qualities.

Ya you can make your own heatpipe, just have to pull a vacuum on the sealed tube before filling it.
I think you could use R134a refrigerant, its used in autos and it doesn't freeze in the winter, that I know of.
In fact its boiling point is -26°C so as long as the cold plated didn't go below that temp it wouldn't hamper the function of the heatpipes
