ok that does it no TEC cooling for me.I was thinking about getting water cooling set up than putting a TEC on my GPU but that has turned me away.

nice work Wile E :toast:. uh, you've got home owners insurance right? might want to explore exploiting such if you do ;). my last TEC solution (a Swiftech MC370-2) ended just about as badly as yours but for a time i had my K6-III 450 running at 600MHz. every time i think of using a TEC i think of the sparks shooting out from my system...

Those Images Remind me of the Chernobyl Incident http://www.spaceman.ca/gallery/chernobyl/f421
Well, I had the TEC/water cooling, E4300, and eVGA 680i A1 up and running for all of a day. Didn't even get to overclock.

First, the explanation. I recently purchased d44ve's whole TEC setup, E4300, and the 680i, all for $400. As shown here: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=36599

Well, after receiving it, and during setup, I spilled some Fuid XP into the Meanwell PSU. It took a little while, but I got it up and running again. Finally got it all put together and running last night. With one hitch, I didn't have a relay kit for the aux psu, so it was plugged directly into my power strip.

The Meanwell runs both pumps and the TEC, but the fans run on the main psu. I ordered a relay kit last night, to be on the safe side. I figured I would run it sans relay, until the kit arrived. I would just be careful to remember to shut off the power to the surge protector, whenever I shut down the computer. As I was about to find out, there was a major hole in my theory.

Earlier today, I fired it all up, and started my Windows updates. I then left to run some errands, leaving the computer to do it's thing. Well, apparently, the power went out while I was gone. It also returned, before I did. You're probably thinking, "what's the big deal?". Well, the computer was off, but the power strip's switch was still on. Meaning the Meanwell, and thus the TEC and pumps fired back up, but not the rad fans. Apparently, a 3x120mm rad cannot cool a 245W TEC passively.

I came home to a house filled with acrid smoke. It got so hot, it melted the acrylic top, the insulation around the socket AND the back of the board, the plastic bits of the socket itself, and it made the IHS come off the chip. What you may not be able to see in the photos, is that the cpu socket got so hot, it actually warped into a concave shape. And there are actually blisters in the top layers of the chip's pcb. I should also note, that I had to pry the chip from the socket with a screwdriver.

Also, when the acrylic top's seal let go, it sprayed the entire inside of my computer down with coolant. So my ram and 2900XT could also be dead. I think I might be ok in that respect tho, as there wasn't any power going to the 2900 and ram, due to the computer being off. I pulled apart the 2900 and cleaned it with non-residue contact cleaner, and I'm gonna let it dry for a few days, to be on the safe side.

I would be totally screwed, if my dad didn't offer to let me buy back the DFI and 6000+ combo I sold him. He decided to take the Intel plunge.

Needless to say, I don't think I'm gonna be messing with TEC again. Anyone want to buy a Meanwell 320W psu, and a Swiftech relay kit for it?

Here's the aftermath: (keep in mind, this is after I cleaned a good portion of the mess.)

yeah man this sort of thing happens alot, lol. thats why this time around I took the highest precautions possible, I dont have pics of my first suare into TEC but trust me mine was disatrous. Tottally get back on the horse though man, you live, you learn, NEVER leave a new TEC setup running while you are gone ulti you know it's integrity. Good luck man.

Lazy slacker, naked in cave—steal elec—see profile
System Name Sex Machine
Processor AMD 9590, upgraded from 4350 only 3 days ago and haven't even installed it yet.
Motherboard ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z, but had to RMS it, so now I have to wait another week.
Cooling Below-ambient thermoelectric. 420-watt, 24v 60mm Peltier chip. Requires two 3-fan radiators.
Memory 16GB Team Xtreem DDR3 2400MHz Model TXWD316G2400HC10QDC01. Will be 32G soon.
Video Card(s) GeForce 480 for now. I don't do 3D games because they involve killing people. I only do second life.
Storage 128G SSD, 1TB SATA III, identical 1TB backup. All are full-disk encrypted. Fcuk the NSA.
Display(s) 120 HZ Viewsonic. Turns out 3D sux, though. Was a waste of money.
Case I run naked (no case). Reduces ambient 8º C, so it reduces all temps 8º C. Also easier to hack with.
Audio Device(s) BTW, I have a 2nd pwr supply slaved to the kilowatt one just to run the 420W peltier & cooling pump.
Power Supply Just got a kilowatt EVGA modular PSU. Old 850W runs the custom liquid cooling setup.
Software Win 7 — Win 8 got Ballmer fired, and rightly so. Apple blows even worse.
Benchmark Scores Misc info: I used to design stuff for a nuc reactor. Naked pix at tinyurl.com/kanescave for you guys
Despite my setbacks, I will never stop overclocking. It's what I like to do.

I do the same thing with cars. I've blown up my share of those making silly mistakes, too. But I still persevere.
Dude, you have EXACTLY the right attitude!!

Most geeks are timid, frightened, reticent, apologetic, permission-asking dweebs. That's also why girls don't like them. But you don't HAVE to be that way!

I am building a custom cooling loop with a 24v, 420-watt TEC. Yes, that's not a typo. Half a kilowatt of cold.

I already killed a motherboard and a CPU from condensation. I had the CPU insulated with silicone, but it cot so cold that the other side of the MB froze. I could have given up and run everything at stock. Instead, I sprayed the new MB on both sides with waterproofing sealant.

Then I melted a pump that was built into the waterblock of a prebuilt liquid cooler. I was all downhearted because I had destroyed my spiffy new watercooling system on the first day.

But what did I do? I ordered a 3-fan radiator, and an asskick pump that I put AFTER the radiator in the loop!

I know something else will probably go wrong. In fact, I am waiting for a backup motherboard to become available next month before I throttle the TEC up to a full 24 volts.

But I HAVE TO overclock due to a life-or death health issue: if I couldn't fuck with fast computers, I'd just DIE!
