New to peltiers

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Ive had probles making water cooling work with my 775 socket because of size and after frying my mobo I decided to go peltier before installing the new one. So far Ive already got the water cooling side done except for a good water block for the peltier. Now I just need to know where to get a high watt peltier and power supply along with everything else. If you could give me a start with finding these parts It'd realy be helpful.

parts needed:

High watt peltier
Compatible Powersupply
Cold plate
Water Block
Accesorys (grease,insulation,etc)

Ive got plenty of cash so I'd like to go all out.

If theres is any thing I missed or suggestions on how to put it all together please fell free to say. Also I didn't see a guide for peltier construction and FAQ's.

Okay, here is my setup that I did.

Wintsch Labs Arctic Web Waterblock
437W Peltier
Meanwell SE-600-15

You can buy the SE-600-24, which is the 24V version, but be warned, the TEC's max voltage is 24V. With the Meanwell, you can adjust the voltage up/down 10%...For instance, I can go with my 15V down to 11.3V, and up to 17.5...If you buy the 24V, you can only go down, not up, because you'll burn your peltier out. Trust me, buy the 15V version. TECs are very inefficient, and running them undervolted makes them more efficient. Here is the page with the different voltages.

Devin Wintsch (Wintsch Labs) doesn't officially sell the Arctic Web anymore, but I got mine by emailing him at support@wintschlabs.com

Right now, with the above setup, I am getting 20C fully loaded, 1.65Vcore @ 2950mHz. The Meanwell is feeding the TEC 17.5V. Yes, quite chilly

They must pay you sell at GeekSquad... BTW Burn, how much do you think a set-up would cost? For just an 85W Pelt or would there be no point in that small of a pelt?

85w is way too small of a TEC. A current processors have a TDP of 65-130w. You usually want double or more of the TDP for a peltier. You need to look in the 200-450w range for any real gain. I guess $350-500 range.

High-end watercooling: $250-350
PSU: $60-150
TEC: $15-30
Insulation: $10
Dieletric Grease + Silicon Spray: $10
Coldplate: $5


Oh... Running a TEC will add to your electrical bill too. It depending on a lot of factors but maybe $5-15 a month.
Once again...

Bah...I think I paid $100 for my Wintsch Labs block, $50 for the peltier, $144 for the PSU...Spent ~$30 in miscellaneous wiring stuff (10AWG wire, end terminals, etc.)..Let me know if you want a more itemized list

Im building a system myself and while I was talking to an electrician we stumbled upon a way to make peltier cooling much cheaper. there is no need to have the voltage completely stable (i.e. remove the 'noise' from the sine wave), it just needs to be approximately 24V, or whatever is necessary. Im buying a power supply for under $80. You need DC current, but it does not need to be as stable as the current going o a CPU. The same goes for all of the parts that don't influence the processing of information [ignoring temperature] (e.g. pumps, fans, lights). Im running all of these parts off non computer power supplies, allowing my PSU to run under less load.

Of course... PC PSUs are not needed and were never mentioned as required. Burn is using a Meanwell. Funny thing is that industrial/ham radio dedicated single output voltage PSUs are more expensive than PC PSUs.

I am running a custom 130w mini-PSU for fans, pump, lighting, and 5" LCD. A400w 12v PSU will power my TEC once it comes in.

the meanwells are designed to supply the same stability voltage as PC PSU's, this adds unnecessary cost to the setup.
