The CorsairLink feature on the AX860i is extremely buggy, and Corsair doesn't seem to be putting many resources into fixing it. I've had a AX1200i since December, and the software has had one or two minor revisions since then, neither of which fixes the problems most people have. Keep that in mind when purchasing. The PSU does have really decent voltage regulation, honest output specs, and a quiet fan.

TEC chillers will usually consume about 1.5x the heat they can remove. So, if you want a TEC chiller that can remove say 150 watts of heat, figure 225-250 watts of power to run it. I built a pretty awesome TEC chiller for my 75 gallon reef aquarium once, it used six 60W Peltier elements sandwiched between two 0.5x8x1.5" stainless milled exchangers. It was pretty awesome.

Well, now I need to revisit an earlier question I had: are TEC chillers powered by the wall outlet, or by the PSU?

Depends. LOL. Most TEC chillers that I've seen are actually external devices that are AC powered and contain their own radiator and cooling fans to cool the "hot side" of the TEC/Peltier devices. They have a Inlet/Outlet loop for connecting your external cooling pipes and external circulation pump and reservoir.

To be honest, getting involved in a TEC chiller isn't something I'd advise unless you're comfortable with insulating everything in the case. The water block and hoses inside your PC case are going to be below ambient temperature, and most likely below the dewpoint. You will end up with condensation anywhere that touches air and is below the dewpoint.
