I read one article her about how you should adjust the power to a peltier, but I can't find the link anywhere, could somone please give it to me?
Well if your goal is to get the cpu as cold as possible to achieve a higher clock speed, Then adjusting the amount of current going to a tec is not the way to go. But if you want to run just enough power to the tec to allow the cpu run just under ambient temp to prevent any problems with condensation it would make sense. Personally I would rather get the cpu as cold as the tec will allow and make sure you seal everything up good so you have no worries.

I do remember reading an article about a piece of hardware that allowed you to controll the power of the tec. I'll see if I can find it for ya. That is if were thinking of the same thing?
Not what I was thinking on, it's was on the news page for a while ago, (1 maybe 2 months). In the circuit there was a op-amp I remember.

I'm bilding/developing a circuit that controls the temp, that the pump is working, peltier power controll, and more(!). If the pump stops the circuit stops/shout down the PC.
