... you will kill you rCPU, TEC and posibly your board as well... lastly, what type of TIM do you plan to use? and how are you powering the TEC? this last one is what i would be most concerned about TBH as TECs can kill regular computer PSUs... i would wait on more week and spend this week doing some research
I noticed it was an advertising scheme, I'm just a little worried that the fact that bootup is also barely a load factor, that aspect makes me worried.
the megahalem has a large base, so that will be fine.I use as5 as they don't sell the mx2 /mx4 stuff here or at least in stores here.
The tec would be powered either by a separate adapter I would make or simply the 600w psu I have and simply rig it up so that it runs off that from multiple 12 v cables. and yeah I'm not in any rush to do it, I've still got another 2 weeks till I'm back home with my pc, just an idea i had in my head and am willing to explore. I've actually thought about doing this twice in the past, but didn't end up doing it simply because I didn't have time to research it.
