peltier and stuff

Postby Half-Saint » Wed Jun 05, 2002 1:05 pm

I noticed some articles about Peltier cooling and they all talk about extremely low temperatures. Can someone tell me how hard it is to install? How good is it REALLY? I was thinking about replacing my Volcano7 with a peltier... dunno yet. I hate the noise.

The Peltier must still trasfer the heat somewhere, so you still have Fan noise. Combining a Peltier cooler with a water cooling system would be fun to check out, but I know of no one making it yet. This may call for modifying a watercooling case, by adding the Peltier to the CPU cooling hose.

Since the peltier is two sided, one hot and one cold what would ahppen if you installed some on the wall of your case? Just put the hot side on the iside of the cane and the cold on the out and your case becomes the heat transfer piece. If you use one as a heatsink with a small fan to move the air around you should be all set..... Interesting idea at least.

Ahh yes, turn the PC case into a refridgerator, just make sure it's Frost Free as condensation could cause trouble. As long as you don't get water dripping on the electronic goodies, Cooler is better. I've often thought of converting one of those Dorm Fridges into a PC case.

See the key is to make it so cold, no condensation can form, as any water would turn to ice, just like a freezer :D

Maybe this would help http://www.peltier-info.com/info.html
It has all the infos you're looking for and touches a bit on thermal compound subjects.

GoodLuck

The "Key" is to make it as cold as possible without letting any "ambiant air" into the Peltier area. The way to do it is to seal off the Peltier cooling area from allowing air to circulate. And if the area is filled in with AS3 the there would be no ambiant air to possibly condensate.

But if u are worried about condensation even the slightest as I am u can seal the mobo. I haven't found a bullet-proof method/media to do so. But I have an idea of using top-coat clear nail-polish. But I have yet to use it and I'm still looking for something better . As for the nail-polish method I feel that it would be a decent insulator. But if anyone has got a better media that I could use plz post so, any idea would help.
