anyone know much about peltier cooling?

Peltier cooling is expensive and you will need a custom loop for that. So it is not worth it to you. The H100 is your best bet with quality fans. If you get some high speed fans, you should be able to keep it quite cool compared to the H60.

Just get a NH-D14.

if you want to get into the 30s you're gonna need a chiller

Peltier cooling is extremely inefficient and uses a whole lot of power. I would definitely not recommend it.

What are your P95/LinX loads? I would not consider a gaming load a high load by any stretch of imagination. If you're getting temps that high, then your voltage is too high, your cooler isn't seated properly, or a combination of both.

i imagine most people in ocn dont really care about how inefficient it is or how many trees will have to burn, the main argument against peltier is the close proximity of extreme hot vs extreme cold which aside from containment issues puts a big physical strain on everything around it. Using a peltier as a chilller in a waterloop is feasible but it kind of loses its point (being small) vs state change chillers and sandwiching it between a cpu and a waterblock is way too unstable to be worth it in high thermal output situations (like say overclocking a 130w cpu)
