Insulate the tubes and all hd waterblock expect where those peltier are . About 6"X6"X9" box . Just making sure if the air flow should be good to keep peliter cool on air ?
Oh right....I see now...Yes that's possible...BUT you didn't read my earlier post did you I would not bother with the 45w TEC's from ebay they have a Qmax of 29.6w if you run these at 50% they will only move about 17w each to run them at the "sweet spot" I talked about testing for would be a complete waste of time with potentially less than 10w moved by each TEC once thermal inefficiencies were accounted for. If they were decent TEC's with a Qmax of 45w things would of been different.
Also if you switch from cooling the air as in my idea to cooling the water then you could do with bigger TEC's than Qmax 45w as there would be a higher load and water takes more energy to change the temp.
You are still thinking of doing this just to cool your 955 ?Edited by zipdogso - 7/26/09 at 5:39pm
