weird
http://www.thermacore.com/thermabase.htm

http://www.melcor.com/chilling.htm

here are some programs to design your own TEC
i havent tested any ( 56k)

It's not a liquid base, it's actually a heat pipe (albeit a squished heat pipe). Rather than using the pipe to move the heat much of a distance, it just spreads it across the base to get more even heating of the heat sink.

This is some cool stuff. The heat pipe in the base
is actually called a vapor chamber. It works exactly
like a heat pipe. The liquid is almost always water.
The VC is used to reduce spreading resistance.

Normally those industrial cooling pieces cost a lot. I asked a company once how much they sold an 8-pass full copper 120mm radiator for, and they told me $300 I think. I'm quite happy with my Blackice for $90. All of those look neat though. I'd like to see how they'd perform in a computer environment.

Probably not any better than what we have already, if they did someone would have one by now.

I'm pretty happy with my 2 Ford heater cores for 40 bucks total.

The ones I was looking at were rated for about 1.5KW of heat and were for cooling medical machines. Overkill and very high-precision.

I Also emailed Thermacore

I emailed Therma core a month odd back to ask them about the liquid to air heat exchangers, but the same sort of reply

We cannot find it to be viable and would need the purchase of 20 units minimum to ship to the UK which would have set me back about 300-400 pounds lol

No, I just didn't spend much time here because I was pretty busy and forgot about the place. I actually signed up a couple years ago but forgot my username because I always used a different one wherever I went. Now I just use mx-6*. ;)

I talk to my brother and see if he can score one for testing or a simmilar unit. I really don't think they'll let him, take one out of the building, let alone lend it to someone else. But it won't hurt to ask. He works for a division of Tyco (not the toy company), repairing hospital equipment, mainly ventilators. He might be able to get accses to one. I'm heading over to his place later on today so Ill ask him if they use those types of heatsinks in anything they repair.
