thermo electrice cooler-

it uses current to make one side hot, one side cool-
Comes in different watt ratings (226,120,80) and requires a hell of a good seperate powersupply and cooling system- NOT for the beginner-

Tipicaly, if you had a Xp 2400, you would need ATLEAST a 226w peltier watercooled-
Also check outs swiftechs site for air cool peltiers-

hi,

you mentioned a separate PSU. now is that dedicated to the peltier? and how does one go about using 2 PSUs in one system? i always thought that one psu connected to the one PSU connector on the mobo. can one mobo control two PSUs? how does all that work btw?

thanks,
barneygumble742

Well, the seperate powersupply is not a normal ATX powersupply, as the peltier requires 25+ amps JUST to the 12v line. Most computer powersupplies have a total output of 30amps over the 12v, 5v and 3v lines and cant run a peilter + motherboard/cpu due to the high amp draw-

Most people setup a relay, where when you turn on your pc, the 12v current trips a cicuit, turning on the seperate powersupply- this relay has connections for a 12v line from the atx powersupply, and the 120v line from the wall outlet, and the 120v line to the powersupply-
It can be bough at radioshack for $10 ish- great thing!

www.Swiftnets.com has some great examples of this-
(edit)
heres a air and water versions of this tec, and powersupply-
