I think thats overkill on a 1.2 celeron :D

Would be cool if you could get it to fit on 370 though. But you'd have to cut the insulation differant, probably would be cheaper to buy the parts seperatly in that case.

ALL the air cooled heatsinks thus far are NOT worth it from everything i have heard.

It will give you temperatures similar to a bad WC system or a louad Air cooling system..just much more epensive.

Plus you need to buy a 100 dollar power supply or make one yourself

You need good cooling to effectively cool the TEC, especially the 226W beast that's included with that HSF. The HSF itself is a very good HSF, but your cooling won't be as effective as if you were cooling the TEC with a WCing setup. IMO any TEC above 120W should be watercooled.

I think it will put too much heat into your case..... also you will have to run your fan at full speed all the time...

You need to have a separate PSU to power the TEC though, and I think conventional water cooling w/ a 172W peltier would be better than a 226W one on a HSF. The fan on the HSF can be changed for a lower speed one, but at the expense of performance of the TEC.

I can't remember who it was, but a few months ago I read a post from a guy using this cooler, and he was very happy with its performance.

Just make sure you have the 4 mounting holes to mount it, but 90$ is a bit much to just cool a celeron, but keep it around and use it on your next comp, just make sure you can mount it there as well.

Well I plan to hit 143 FSB with a 1.2 Celeron Which will be 1.7gig...It wont be easy, that I already know but it will make it more fun and at least then I wont have to worry much about temps...


Thanks for the info guys...

You have an AT power supply with 20 amps on the 12V leg? That's the minimum requirements for a dedicated power supply.
