I am just wondering if people ever use Peltiers in other ways other the between the CPU or videocards?

I was thinking of a way to place a peltier on an aluminum resevoir to cool the water more, or perhaps on the radiator.

using them to chill watter is pretty inefficant i mean sure it works but not to well there are a few comercial products that can do it but they are way expensive and you can get better temps using it directly on the die or by using a phaze cooler
