    I will have a review sample from TT in February. It seems to be an Aluminum HSF/Peltier combo.

    If this thing actually works it'll be awesome... Close to water cooling temps without having to worry about pumps, tubing, etc. I love wc'n but this would just be sooo much easier

    an aircooled pelt, eh.

    you can do that now with constant voltage to the pelt, my question is what the heck does the processor thingy do exactly. It adjusts the fans, but a pelt is always taking away X watts of heat, so the top plate would always be hot, it is the cold plate that changes temp, depending on thermal load, so wouldn't the fans just be overpowered like they are in many aircooled pelts now?

    or do i have this all wrong?

    The scary bit is that they don't say what speed CPU's are giving the temps on the last part of the page. To properly cool the fastest CPU's of today you need more than that tiny aluminium HS.

    And how many watts is that peltier? The only info is that the controller pulls 73watts from mains at full stress, that's feeding both the peltier and the two fans.. Plus power conversion loss..
    The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong, is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong, it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair

    If my memory serves me correctly, Thermaltake is working with ActiveCool to make this product. See this data sheet that I got from the company:

    http://www.math.umn.edu/~macklin/ima...GDataSheet.pdf

    I talked with these folks some time ago ... on the forums, we had quite a discussion here in October:

    Hope that helps -- Paul

    @Antman: Did you have that avatar first, or did Mpegger? Just curious ...

    Ah, yes, here's the press release:

    Antman, many of us will be anxious to see your review, as many of us were split on how well we thought it would do. Woohoo! -- Paul

    Looks cool but I wonder how the results will be. I mean, I was kind of dissapointed that it is aluminum and not copper and the Swiftech air peltier combo is copper.

    Lawrence: No. No, man. ****, no, man. I believe you'd get your ass kicked sayin' something like that, man.

    Yeah, I'm pretty much at the "wait and see" place right now ... -- Paul

    Of course, they said they weren't planning on making one for socket 370, so I guess it's more of an academic wondering ....
