TEC on e6600, worth it?

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
Here are the components I got:
-Ultra Power Partner 325-Watt ATX Power Supply (ULT40063)
-245W Potted Peltier
-Luberex Dielectric Grease
-Silicone Conformal Coating - 12oz. Aerosol
-50x50mm Copper Cold Plate
-Swiftech H20-APEX "ULTRA" Series Liquid Cooling Kit, but with a Black Ice XtremeII Radiator instead of the swiftech made one. 1/2" ID tubbing.

I have another loop in the system colling the gpu and northbridge with a 120mm swiftech radiator. Both loops are using the same pump MCP655 but they dont cross each other in terms of heat. Most things are swiftech and from newegg or frozencpu.com

CPU=e6600.
MOBO=intel 975XBX
memory=PNY 6400 2 gb
PSU=XION 700 watt

Is this going to work on the e6600 cpu? Is it worth it concidering performance over electricity consumption or heat increase in the room?

if you already have the stuff, go for it. make sure you often check for condensation, especially in the beginning.

It's worth it kind of, a single 120 Black ICE GTX might not give optimal temps but definitely better than not having it at all. What fan do you use? Might be worthwhile setting up two in a push pull configuration.

might also need to cover your tubing, that's sometimes a condensation hazard.

its a dual, as far as i understand. should be sufficient, but not outstanding.

Ok here is my planned setup
Pump MCP655->y-split->1)Apogee waterblock with pelt->Black ICE ext II
with 2x120 cooler master fans~60CFM-> back
to pump through another y-split.

->2) swiftech Northbridge block->Swifth VGA block->
Swifth 120mm radiator with 120mm Ultra fan~80CFM
-and then back to pump through y split

So i got 2 loops running from 1 pump. One is the northbridge and vga with its own 120m radiator and fan. The other is the cpu with a 245watt peltier and a 240mm radiator with 2x120mm fans.
My question is is the peltier enough for a e6600?
Is the water cooling enough?

I want to be -10 to 10 Celcius area with a 3.5- 4 ghz on the e6600

Also in the future i plan to replace the 7900 gt with a 8800 GTX

heh, you won't get -10 degrees with any pelt maybe at idle but at load it will shoot up.

Still it will be below ambient, that's pretty good.

try different setups. might be a lot of effort required, but its worth it in the end.

How are both loops using the same pump and not crossing heat?

A 325w PSU will not be adequate to power a 245w TEC at full power. However, it might be ok to run the TEC at 12v. What fans do you have on the 120.2 rad? You are going to triple your current heat load on the CPU loop with a TEC.
Once again...

triple? at 12v pelts are more efficient than at 15v. id say 2.5x.
in any case, i would recommend getting some aftermarket coolers for the chipsets, and adding the single 120 rad to the loop, before or after the dual one. it'll really help with temps.

1st the fans are 2 coolermasters ~60 cfm each
2nd i do have another 120 single rad in the second loop, its cooling the northbridge and the videocard.

the 2 loops are running from the same pump, but each loop has its own radiator. the one with the pelt has the dual blackice extreme II rad. the other loop has the single 120 rad with an ultra 120mm fan 90cfms of air flow.
