    this is more of a concept that i plan on building for fun

    specs to be
    4x~70w tecs
    4x copper coolers
    4x tower coolers (AMD heatpipe HSF for initial testing)
    1x styrofoam cooler
    4x barbs

    the copper coolers need to get turned or the barbs need to be swapped but this is my initial CAD drawing its unrendered just exported as a JPEG any suggestions ideas?

    here is with 120mm tower coolers they wont fit thats why i voted 92mm ones

    TEC , AKA PELTIER is this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermoelectric_effect


    Heats one side of the device and cools the other side when voltage is applied. it is use'd in some small fridges etc.



    larger more powerful models can cool things well below the freezing point of water.
    codyjansen says thanks.
