    wow what stupidity from the majority of posters, this is one of the first mainstream implimentations of peltier technology. so if the majority of your small minds had their run on things, we'd never see SSD tech get to where it is today, because on first mainstream attempt they were much, much slower than 7200rpm drives. or ddr would never have gotten to ddr2 or ddr3, when they were first released the speed improvements were negligible and the prices were far higher than their predecessors. try to see past your own nose once n awhile maybe?

    Doesn't change the fact that it isn't as good as other coolers that are half the price.

    If the V8, V10 and V12 were released over a year ago, then i would have been impressed. This dragging news of these 3 coolers being released is really bad.

    When i first heard of these coolers i paid special interest towards the V12 and am still anxiously awaiting their arrival down under. The V8 finally hit the shelf, and i guess this marks the V10 hitting the shelf, now its just a matter of the V12 heading my way.

    The V8 has been priced at what i expected to pay for the V12.

    They did this about two years or more ago .....And I have one ...it worked better than than this thing seems too but also did not have the ram fins which are on the cold side....It was a fun cooler ....I did experaments with like stacking peltiers to see the affects.. ( I had it on a FX57 clocked and it did very well as good as any average water rig)....but yup sooner or later they will get it right, it probably take water to do it though.....some pics of it from my cell...

    Except that both Monsoon and Ultra products already marketed peltier air coolers years ago.

    No, I'm pretty sure it's an 80w TEC. They just keep it throttled back. I seem to remember somebody doing a test on it by bypassing the controller module.

    Atleast if zombies pull off an uprising you can tie it to a bit of string and use it as a flail :laugh:

    Most 12v 40mm TEC are 80W. But I'm not 100% sure if it was the Ultra that the test was performed on.
