With high-end homemade water TEC setups, yes. Not with the air ones:

For this application i just don't see it working.
I don't understand what you are saying. Why would you need the HS to dissapate more power?

Also, I don't think the heat output needs to be as balanced as you think it does. From what the article said, it sounds like the converter would just produce more energy with more heat.

100w = 51w converted to energy, 49w dissapated by other means (CONSTANT)
150w = ~75w converted to energy, ~75w dissapated by other means (CONSTANT)

because you only dissapate 80% of it with the new device

yea, so you have another 25w that when not dissapated has to go somewhere right? increasing the heat in the CPU till it overheats? It's like running a cpu that puts off 25w of heat, if you don't get rid of that heat, then you're going to blow the cpu.

[edit] just to end this, i'll just say that i'm skeptical.... almost a too good to be true kind of thing. We'll just have to wait and see if this works as they think it should.

Ah, I understand now.

I think what the article was saying is that the device would absorb all of the heat, but not all of it would turn back into energy. The part that wasn't turned into energy would dissapate just as it would off of a heatsink. And I'm assuming this company has made it in such a way that it sufficiently keeps the CPU cool.

I'm definitely skeptical at the idea as well. I haven't really seen anything that works on creating energy that is efficient enough to justify the costs for it, and I don't see this as a possible exception.
