hey Colin,
why is the 172 watt chaper than the 156?

also, i have the slot-a athlon, so i will be placing the cold side of pelt to cpu coldplate and the waterblock to the outside of the coldplate but i should probably use the ac2 between the pelt and the waterblok right?

why cant i just put the cold side of pelt directly on the half inch die?

40mm * 40mm verses 50mm * 50mm for the 156 watt.

You need the cold plate to focus all of the pelts cooling onto your CPUs die. There is also a possiblity of damaging the pelt by clamping it to the small surface area of the CPU die,

Also, a cold plate helps to disperse the CPU die's heat, so therefore, your whole pelt's cooling surface can be used as compared to a small portion
