What exactly is a peltier??? I'm going to re-position my HSF probably and I'm going to lap it and probably my IHS... I just bought my new CPU last week, but my HSF is on kinda funky so I think I'm going to re-position...
Does using a non-stock HSF on any CPU void the warranty??? because I don't want to void a warranty of something I've had less than a month
As some 1 mentioned earlier , its near to impossible to prove you havnt used the stock heatsink, just make sure you stick the stock 1 on and off the cpu to make it look used before you send it back! or they might catch on
A peltier A.K.A TEC is an electrical heat pump, very clever compact device, it uses a strange method that you can setup yourself
eg if you made a circuit with
+ junction > copper wire > iron wire > back to copper wire > - junction
the coper to iron junction will get hot and the iron to copper junction will get cold.So a peltier is basically a series of material changes going back and forth with all the hot junctions on 1 side and all the colder junctions gathhered on the other side of the peltier block . Also works the other way round i belive, i.e applying heat to the copper to iron junction will generate a current in the circuit! weird stuff, learnt about it in thermodynamics @ uni
