tec mounting questions(for res) pics inside

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
ok, so i bought a tec assembly today i know i paid more than if i bought just a tec , but i have always wondered how this specific unit was assembled. anywho... heres my question,pics will be below to assist in explaining my question.
First, this tec is NOT going to die direct or tec - cpu heat spreader direct. this is for being submerged in a custom res. the cpu h/s pictured will be submerged in the resfor the cold side and i'm using a 140 push/pull for the hot side cooling.
while disassambling this tec assembly i found this aluminum block(pictured below) with something that had wires going off the power supply feeds to the tec that were slid into the groove on the side of the aluminum block.....

what are the wires for and what is that thing called that was in the slot of the side of the alum. block? do i need "it" for my application?
second question.... how should i mount this tec? should i use the alum. block or should i mount it like so(pic below)?

the second pic looks like it may be a thermostat to turn off the tec when whatever it is reaches a certain temp. what did this come out of?

this is reminding me of my inspiration for my chiller.

I don't know what it came out of. I bought it as a complete unit already assembled with 2 h/s's . So can I cut that thing off or do I need to leave it on??

What do you hope to try to cool with that 60 watt Qmax TEC ? It looks like it came out of a Koolatron picnic cooler that you plug into your car lighter. Thing with two leads is most likely temp sensor for IC board you didn`t show us, tell us all info you have if you want proper answer otherwise we are working in the dark.

^^^^^ there is no IC that I have not shown or mentioned. In the picture below is how I bought it at tiny well known shop here called skycraft.
My goal is to attach a h/s to the cold side and submerge the h/s in a custom res like so.... CPU > 240 rad> res with tec cold side h/s submerged > CPU
Now for the hot side of the tec, I want to water block it and 120 rad that loop.
But back to the original question... Do I need that temp sensor thing if that's what it is???

Do not need temp sensor as you will be running full power at all times, you cannot hope to cool your cpu with the TEC because it only has a Qmax of 60-65 watts. Are you going to put the heatsink in a fishtank or something like that, if so you will get more cooling effect from the tank.
