Titan Amanda TEC! Its Amazing! - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Thread Starter 
Jack : I got it for 100$ (should be cheaper in other countires we pay %18 tax),Monsoon has a Lite version for 89$
Nitteo : Front fan takes the air in and blows it tru the heatsink and the rear fan blows it out to the exhaust fan.
DuckieHo I switched to this one from a Zalman 9500,i'm not sure how different the 9700 is,i wish i had some decent coolers to compare with.

Ok now lets just get a few things in perspective here before everyone fights over which is the best air cooling devices around are.
  • TEC coolers may use AIR as the main cooling source but the technology is different.
  • You have to always consider ambient temps when comparing air coolers
  • Inclosed or open-form testing, none of us leave their PCs out, we always put them in cases, consider the air cooling the case houses, not only that, things like type of fans that indicate the amount of air moving in and out of the case is also important.

To say that "this" or "that" cooler is better isn't really valid since the environment where the judgment is taking place differs from one place to another. If one certain cooler does great on your system it might not on mine depending on the factors mentioned above.

The other thing I can't seem to understand is adding another fan to the TT 120 extreme, one pushing air in the fins, the one pulling to exhaust, as far as I know from basic air cooling is that two fans will cancel eachother UNLESS both are move the same amount of air, and in that case, you've really accomplished nothing.

TECs are extremely sensitive to load temperatures and environmental temperatures. Their performance decreases as the both get higher. Once you exceed a certain limit, TECs actually will start to increase your temperature.

So far, many review has so far shown its load performance is not that extraordinary. Regardless of case setup, a apple-to-apples comparison in the same setup yields useful data.

The fans moving air through a dense heatsink must overcome resistance or back pressure. Adding more fans allow the more air to be pushed through.
