Many people on this site have said you cant cool a TEC with air and get improved, or below ambiant temps. I thought this was true too, but look at this article. It shows test results with an air cooled TEC at 5C° below ambiant...I will try to find more info on the stuff they used in this article and post it here.

The Thermal Guideline values for an 800MHz P3 listed on intel.com are about 20W. Which is nothing, and that's why they could cool it with air...

only way i woulddare to use a TEC with a heatsink is in regaurds to chilling water in a WC loops. In fact, it works... It's a good way to have a portable waterchiller that involves a closed system. But on a processor, the thermal load would definitely fry the peltier and then fry your proc.

Wait, you want to chill water with a TEC? A TEC that can be air cooled would be low powered and would not work very well. That money spent setting up the pelt would be better spent on a better/larger radiator.
