Shorten the story with a question. I have ga-970a-ud3p Motherboard with Phenom II x4 955 be with 125w tdp ratings tried some aftermarket coolers but that didtnt help me out with temps (aftermarket coolers are very costly here) I have coolermaster v8 right now but I still am in dangerous zone as my temps with almost every kind of temp readers is 50c idle all the time. I was looking here and there for some serious solution that brings me here. I have searched for TEC and found two models which are available 1st- TEC1-12560 and 2nd TEC1-12751. Please guide me that which one I have to buy right now and how to use it (means will one of this help some or not) and do I have to do some alteration in it as I am planing to copy your project.
I am very stressed like my pc and only 20c to 15c decrease with your help is I am looking for.
Unless you supply a direct link to those particular TECs I don't know what or where they're coming from, or what they're spec'd out to do?
This chilled water cooling is really for high CPU overclocks, much higher than is normally achieved with traditional air or water cooling methods and you do not mention any overclocking intentions?
I understand you live in a hot ambient temperature environment area, but all CPUs are designed to operate without problems in the various ambient temperatures around the world, with their stock coolers.
You may be a candidate for something like the Swiftech H220X, or going to a custom water cooling solution for lower operational temperatures without overclocking?
I'm not sure you fully understand how much this type of chilled water cooling actually costs fully constructed, it is far more than aftermarket cooling solutions?
It performs very well, but is not cheap as far as all the hardware necessary to put it into operation, and the TECs draw electricity above the computers normal use just to operate?
