TEC questions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok so my plan is to take 5 TECs @ 250 watt each and mount them to a solid copper block and then mount this to my CPU. i will be doing something similar for each compnent in my setup.
my question is:
What kind of cooling power will i need for each as a standard?
like, if i were to run each at 6v how much would i need and how much for each at 12v?

What would be a standard WC setup to cool just a single TEC effectively enough for extreme overclocking?
ex:
Would i need a 240 rad for each TEC block or would a 120 or 140 do the job?

thanks in advance for your inputs

At 12V it uses about 250W each TEC (50mm ones). At 6V, 65W each.
You will need about one 240 rad for each TEC to run at 12V. At 6V, two 240 rad will be enough for 5 TECs.

Use ultrasonic2's TEC calculator, it's very convenient..

If you make it, your block will weight at least 8lbs copper is heavy.

awesome thanks for the info
im definately gunna check out that calculator

and yea the block will be heavy but i plan on laying the MoBo flat inside the case i will be making. I also have a mount idea to just run some screws through the mount holes in the mobo and just attach it directly to the bottom of the case. This way (as long as i support the MoBo correctly) i can tighten the block on a bit more than you usually would want to.

...but anyways, thanks for the help bud...rep+

Sounds good. It will be a beast with 5 TECs.
If you build something like XSPC Hive H1, should have all the rad inside the case

Sometime ago Mindchill made a similar design with 4 TECs. I think he uses aluminum. check this: http://www.overclock.net/peltiers-te...ter-block.html
