pretty much this is electric cooling, you put this on your cpu

it has 2 sides. one is extremely cold and one is extremely hot,

what you would do is pair it up with water cooling.

you can achieve idle temps below zero.

you will need an external power source.

can you really go below zero can it be with air cooling? like si-97 would that work and what you mean external power source?

To cool a modern CPU you'll need a TEC with a Qmax of at least 226 watts, combine that thermal output plus that of your CPU, which is around 60-70 watts, you'll need a cooler that can dissipate around 300watts, and to cool that you'll need a water cooling system. You could do it with air, but chances are the temperatures would be higher than if you just cooled the processor by itself with the heatsink.

what kinda air cooling can dissipate 300 watts? do you need special power supply? how hot does the hot side get?

and how much can a heatsink aircool dissipate ?

damn, what kinda water cooling you need? and what is a diamond heatsink?

but your on the right track go back to the Danger Den website and order a customizeable kit with a waterblock, resivior, radiator and get the tubes and clips at a local appliance store

how far would u expect the 2600+m to go? how much money too?

You have to be extremely careful with a TEC system. They're very complicated and require a lot of extra electricity (you can't run them off your system power supply, you'll have to buy a dedicated one just for the TEC) and they're not very efficient, they consume more energy than they remove. But a good TEC, like a 350watt one, can probably yield sub-zero idle temperatures, and loads maybe in the 10'sC and you probably could get 2.7-2.8GHz out of a good chip with it

I'm getting pover 2600 actual out of my 2600m I stepping with air. From what I'v seen in here you should see about 2800actual w water! Look at plagues results
and others of course

you really dont need it if you are not going to be doing extremem overclocking. no one really uses pelts unless they are overclocking past the 1ghz mark. anything under that just good ol watercooling will be fine.

I'm doing teh 1ghz mark and I'm using stock, who needs a pelt with one one of the best HSF's, The Almighty Intel NorthWood cooler! (I make myself laugh, lol.
