I've been playing with the CoolIT TEC's for some time now, and I'm satisfied with them. I got them cheap, (2 FZE's for the price of a new FZE)...
Only thing I'm not pleased with, is the sound they produce. I need 2 UltraKaze 3000rpm fans to keep them cool at 100% tec load.
Maybe a direct die would be a better idea, as then you can cool down the TEC load with a normal rad with fans on 1200-1500rpm low noise.
But then, the hassle of insulating is keeping me back, plus I need a new PSU for the TEC which needs to be stored somewhere. My pc is in the livingroom, so I do not have that much space
I also want to keep the pc as 1, and don't want to have tons of stuff which I have to drag with me when going to a LAN-party....
