Can I use my Thermoengine with a delta 38 to cool a 85 watt pelt that i am going to use on my rig?

The peltier will actually cause more heat since its not nearly strong enough. Air cooled peltiers are best used on P3s and celerons.

i got questions, as you can see, i am running a cel-t, and temp is fine, but i will switch to PIII-s soon (hope i can pass the ram test, posted by intel:D ). and i know i my PIII-s will run much hotter than its little bro, and i am not too fond of idea of h2o. anyway, i am just wondering, if i use a pelt, what would be the best wattage for my chips (1.26 @ 1.6+, load 42c). and do i have to worry about condensation and stuff? thanz man
