Any Peltier experts here?



I am building a new system. Probably a AMD Opty170, Geil One mem, 4 16mb buffer HDDs in Raid 0 and my trusty X800GTO. I have built a water cooling system and am using a swiftech CPU Pelt block 226 watt, and a XG 600watt external Power supply.

My PS has 2 rails one with 18A and the other with 22a. I can devote the whole 22A rail to the pelt. I think I only need 18.9A at 12v. I am also using a water cooler to cool the water line to about 45-55 F.

Think Il be ok?

Should be fine. :) I'm no peltier expert though. How many watt peltier are you thinking about?

I'm not a Peltier expert but I want to know where you can get the XG 600 watt External PSU. I need a new one for my Media Center PC so I can put a mid-high end card on it and I don't want to take out the current one.
