Reviews for this would be interesting, I wonder if it will take off/make it across the pond. Has there ever been a consumer TEC cooler sold like this before? I can imagine some people seeing a 6-pin connector and thinking that can't be better for cooling.

This reminds me of


That create a lot of condensation, wouldnt this new model do the same? Allthough its a much less powerfull TEC element

Those 2 have pretty much nothing in comparison, 2 very different technologies.

There have been air cooled TEC coolers in the past, but they all perform horribly. For an on-die TEC to handle a modern CPU at full load, it needs to be rated at nearly double the CPU output - IE, 150w TEC for a 75w CPU. Then, the air cooler needs to be able to move that 150+75w of heat.

Air coolers dont do well with north of 200w heat loads, and since TECs work on a delta the hotter the hot side the hotter the cold.

Still interesting cooler, and may be nice for a stock low wattage chip, but not for an OC'd i7.

Looks like it has cooling for the cold side and the hot side of the TEC... Would have to see it in action to see if its more than a gimmick.

How does something like this compare to say an H115i? It would be nice to be able to fit the cooling capacity of an AIO water cooler into one of these small TEC coolers. I would definitely like to see some reviews on this though.

Do you say the same about every heatsink block and rad setup that comes out? I hope to see reviews of this but seems like they came up with a compact, no fuss, hybrid solution with smart monitoring involved; where do you see that out right now for that price & ease of setup?
