Here are the components I got:
-Ultra Power Partner 325-Watt ATX Power Supply (ULT40063)
-245W Potted Peltier
-Luberex Dielectric Grease
-Silicone Conformal Coating - 12oz. Aerosol
-50x50mm Copper Cold Plate
-Swiftech H20-APEX "ULTRA" Series Liquid Cooling Kit, but with a Black Ice XtremeII Radiator instead of the swiftech made one. 1/2" ID tubbing.

I have another loop in the system colling the gpu and northbridge with a 120mm swiftech radiator. Both loops are using the same pump MCP655 but they dont cross each other in terms of heat. Most things are swiftech and from newegg or frozencpu.com

CPU=e6600.
MOBO=intel 975XBX
memory=PNY 6400 2 gb
PSU=XION 700 watt

Is this going to work on the e6600 cpu? Is it worth it concidering performance over electricity consumption or heat increase in the room?

It's worth it kind of, a single 120 Black ICE GTX might not give optimal temps but definitely better than not having it at all. What fan do you use? Might be worthwhile setting up two in a push pull configuration.

might also need to cover your tubing, that's sometimes a condensation hazard.

Ok here is my planned setup
Pump MCP655->y-split->1)Apogee waterblock with pelt->Black ICE ext II
with 2x120 cooler master fans~60CFM-> back
to pump through another y-split.

->2) swiftech Northbridge block->Swifth VGA block->
Swifth 120mm radiator with 120mm Ultra fan~80CFM
-and then back to pump through y split

So i got 2 loops running from 1 pump. One is the northbridge and vga with its own 120m radiator and fan. The other is the cpu with a 245watt peltier and a 240mm radiator with 2x120mm fans.
My question is is the peltier enough for a e6600?
Is the water cooling enough?

I want to be -10 to 10 Celcius area with a 3.5- 4 ghz on the e6600

Also in the future i plan to replace the 7900 gt with a 8800 GTX

heh, you won't get -10 degrees with any pelt maybe at idle but at load it will shoot up.

Still it will be below ambient, that's pretty good.

How are both loops using the same pump and not crossing heat?

A 325w PSU will not be adequate to power a 245w TEC at full power. However, it might be ok to run the TEC at 12v. What fans do you have on the 120.2 rad? You are going to triple your current heat load on the CPU loop with a TEC.

triple? at 12v pelts are more efficient than at 15v. id say 2.5x.
in any case, i would recommend getting some aftermarket coolers for the chipsets, and adding the single 120 rad to the loop, before or after the dual one. it'll really help with temps.

1st the fans are 2 coolermasters ~60 cfm each
2nd i do have another 120 single rad in the second loop, its cooling the northbridge and the videocard.

the 2 loops are running from the same pump, but each loop has its own radiator. the one with the pelt has the dual blackice extreme II rad. the other loop has the single 120 rad with an ultra 120mm fan 90cfms of air flow.

A 245w TEC running at 12v consumes 200-225w which means it produces around that much in heat. Plus the original heat of the overclocked processor (around 90w).... I say the triple the original load is pretty accurate.

also since the tec/coldplate and waterblock are all 50x50mm, how can i apply enogh preassure. I was thinking of using the mother and water block and sandwish the cold plate and pelt between them

You will get better temps if you can build a mounting for the cold block. TEC require MUCH more pressure than CPUs. Check Ira-K's FuZion cold plate.

2 loops off the same pump = one big loop...not two.

Splitting your loop is also killing your rate of flow, which could cause temps on your TEC block to increase, as water will take longer to pass through the block.

Why not just hook it all in series..as one..no splitting. Your pressure will be much better....Duckie can prolly' vouch for that one.

ok so one big loop in series it is. the only thing that worries me now is:
-how to apply enogh preasure on the tec, i mean the 3 components measure 50x50mm, can i drill holes though the tec?
Any ideas on a mounting jig for this.
will thermal epoxy work, if so where can i find some

absolutely no..do not drill the TEC or its ruined! What you need is a pressure plate thats like 52mmx52mm or something of that nature..that ways you can sandwich the TEC and your cpu block with good pressure.

I'll have to ask Ira-k what the recommended smash pressure is.

Its 150-300psi CL...Here is my build log where I made an over-sized cold-plate and used the extra mounting holes in my Stinger CPU block to mount it and really crush the Pelt good....I used a big C-Clamp to crush mine or you can use a vise.If you have a plastic topped block don't do it like I did you would push the barbs out the bottom of the block, the Stinger is built like a tank that is the only way I got by doing it like this...fstfrddy is making Pelt blocks now and Burn is pretty close to making his own also....

Work Log....Stinger V-8 Pelt Block

realistically wat kind of temps can i expect w this set up
