    OK I am not sure , But my head is always thinking since I will be getting a T.E.C. water block ( Swiftech WB I was thinking maybe it would be possible to stack the T.E.C. ? put a second one on top and get to real cooling ? I would need to know what size T.E.C. I would need to cool off 226w though ? Or can it even be done . :rolleyes:
    Just thinking maybe you can help me with this ? :toast: Join in and see if we can come up with some thing since well I will more than likely try it out any way :D

    Stacking them won't offer extra cooling.

    Well one side of the peltier gets cold, the other gets warm.

    You'll be cooling the peltier that's it.

    Yeah that was what I was thinking keeping it from getting hot or reaching its limit know what I mean ?
    Man maybe I will just get one of these 437w and replace the other one ? :rockout:

    437w would be imo far to extreme without a ridiculously customized w/c kit. it will get far to hot. that and you probably wouldnt go that high anyway. 437w of cold on one side and condensation would probably get extreme.

    You can stack them, but you have to be able to cool them.
