With having 2 CPU on the mobo the thought of have 2 peltiers creating heat in the box is almost enough to grab some steak out of the fridge.

Obviously the heat created, and the current draw on the PSU makes the idea of using a peltiers to reduce heat somewhat of a joke.

So what about this..... placing 1 peltier on the side of an external alloy water container with a huge Heat Sink attached I'm talking 8' x 3' x 2' thermal resistance = 0.552c per watt

Is it feisable or not?

It's a nice Idea, on that several people are thinking about trying(myself included). You may want to read This first. As you can see, the results were not spectacular. I'm going to try the same thing, but I may wind up using two pelts to chill the water enough for just one processor.

i have a thought! how about we still use back to water cooler kit but now plus one more water block and a small peltier on it!! and add one more good HSF on the peltier to get rid of heat!! the output water from the pump was pump thru this cool water block b4 it reach the water block on the cpu!! this might work or may not work too!! just a thought!! one thing bothering me is that would that HSF can get rid all the heat product by the peltier??

If I understand, you are suggesting a heat exchange usings an external water block before going into the internal water blocks...
I was more looking at a way of keeping the whole volume of water cool, but this might work...

well, some sort like that. actually it mean the heat carry from the cpu are take out by the radiator. and the cooled water was send to another water block with peltier to cool down even more. is that clear to describe my thought?? :)

Buy a small refrigerator and keep your reservoir in there. Then You got a place next to your pc to store your beer, soda or what ever else, as well as keep your water for your pc nice and cold!

Pretty simple to achieve that actually, as that is similar to my setup, Except for I have my whole freezer compartment dropped down into my rez, There are no Lines that run on the sides of the dorm fridge I use, I simply drilled 3 holes thru it, 2 for the water lines, 1 for the cord for my water pump, done deal.
