What do you guys think of peltier coolers? I would like to try one out but I've heard they cause condensation. Is there any way to prevent this? I've seen some units tested thet came with a heatsink/fan but could never find out where to purchase them, oh yeah they also had some sort of a gasket that was supposed to stop condensation. Ever seen this? one was called a swiftechmc370-4 but it's not on their website. thanks in advance for any info

the way i would prevent condenation is to keep the CPU temperature up at all times such as running Folding or crunching for seti

Since you are running a very fast AMD processor the swiftechmc370-4 is not a very good choice. I think the reason you don't see the 370-4 is because it was recalled. If you want a peltier I strongly recommend using water cooling along with it. Aircooled peltier are ok for CPUs that put out much less heat than a T-bird or duron.
