if this TEC is going to stay on for extended durations. The last thing you need is extra heat build up, due to increasing the amperage load on the PSU and wires..
Lookin nice! Great temps for 3.8ghz.. I can only see those on load, if I keep my side door open in the house.. [drops ambients in meh cpu room to ~60c
] ..and thats at 3.6ghz.
I would think you would be getting lower idle temps than ~25c though..am I crazy?

...Hey if it doesn't do anything but keep your tail wires from burning off its a good thing, bet you'll get a little better temp's to though...
Yup, going to home depot tomorrow, gonna pick up some 10ga wires for both the Outlet->PSU cable and the PSU->TEC cables.
The dual 18ga wires still got extremely hot (but I could at least touch them this time, heh). But the good news is that the temps dropped, and now Core 1 and 2 bounce between 21 and 22 degress, and Core4 stays around 15
. So maybe with the thicker cables it will just stay colder than the sensors can read, period.

i got atleast another week to go still getting a bunch of stuff in... i should be getting a package in 2 days and then another by monday and then i got everything and a few extras
cant wait to get these type of temps
and when are we going to be able to see the case in which all this awesomness is going to be placed in??
I'm watching your thread closely, it a kickass build! And yup you'll get great temps soon too, just make sure you get thicker wires than I did lol.
I'll start installing this in its case tomorrow after I get the other wires and try it out.
The 8GB ram got here as well, so that's gonna be fun
. After all that's done though, It'll be a long way to 4.8GHz....
By the way, is there any way to like....double up on TECs? Or would I just have to try and get a more powerful one? I dunno, it just doesn't seem like the pelt is taxing the WC system its hooked up to, I figure there's room for some more Edited by Manyak - 11/3/08 at 5:38pm
