    Actually, if it is an awesome of a cooler as TEC is known to be and with the quality of Swiftech, then 160 bucks isnt too ridiculous. I actually like this. I hope they get one for AMD. Then Ill just build me a swiftech kit with this :)

    If its the same as my peltier waterblock It will use a dedicated power supply. I run mine from a seperate meanwell peltier specialised powersupply. I have a relay switch built into the back of my pc with a connector for the power cable used on normal pc PSU's. So everytime i turn on my pc the meanwell powers up, and shuts down when i power off my pc.

    Relay kits ARE ESSENTIAL, since i had an accident once on a pelt block i designed that was simply activated via a switch on the front of my pc.. i powerd off my computer but stupidly 4got the peltier powersupply. Woke up the next day and half my case was melted lol.... pop went my old x800 card and processor. That water block got so hot the anodized coating vaporised off. :slap:

    It plugs directly into your PSU, but I wouldn't exactly want to run it that way. Swiftech does sell a dedicated Mean Well power supply complete with relay switch for $145.

    You can get the plate that they use on this for around $35. If you already have a watercooling kit, it would be much cheaper to make this yourself.

    Agreed, i custom built my own setup based on their official "kit" and for that fact i got it much cheaper. I even got a discount on the meanwell power supply :) just look around, and look hard, and im sure you will find individual component bargains somewhere


    Edit: oh, and I built my own relay switch, and slightly modified my mean well powersupply to deliver a higher max Voltage, since the pelt could take more than was offered by the supply

    Think thats a good possibility, works like a charm with the higher voltage, think it was a max of 15v so yeah i reccon its the same. Was gonna invest in the new swifttech graphics card pelt block, but decided against it since id have to run one from my psu and well thats already under load atm. I had pelt on my old x800, now that was nice :)

    I'm kicking the pelt idea around, myself. I just can't decide what to upgrade. Cooling, mobo, cpu, or ram.

    well, if you can get better cooling for your cpu, i guess its kinda 2 birds with 1 stone if it allows you to squeeze out more from ur current processor?

    I was thinking of upgrading my cooling more for future proofing. I'm at my board's limits.

    ahh, kk. I wished I had got a dual-core amd when i had the chance tbh, fair enuff this sandy has hauled ass when gently spanked, but I just cant upgrade knowing i still have a perfectly good precessor in my rig, which aint that old tbh.. grmble.. hindsight is a wonderful thing. Think im gonna try to take this board i have to within an inch of its life b4 i next upgrade.

    Actually, u know how long the 939 socket is gonna be around for? in terms of new processors coming out..

    They're already done making them. Now would be the time to find that dc if you want it.
