Just curious! It is an interesting design, really.

Plus several people are interested in this item, for obvious over clocking reasons!

Take a peek, and wonder...

Pay extra attention to the heat pipe design.

Didnt there used to be a few of those floating around years ago??

I think at the time they were a no no. They were quite expensive, a good air cooler was way cheaper and proper water cooling still worked cooler.

At that price its well worth a look tho.

I've heard that they have issues with condensation on the cold side of the TEC, which, needless to say is bad for the electronics being cooled :) 

That particular heatpipe design is interesting, but it seems like it's piping cold and hot to the same set of fins, so I'm not sure I see much benefit. I suppose the cold goes to the CPU also, but I'm not sure how that really balances out, in the scheme of things.

i heard its really crap because of its high noise and unmatch to high end air cooler. after all air cooler give best cooling at a reasonable price.

Meh.. I bet a XIGMATEK S1283 would come close to the cooling of that TEC.

actually it will be dancing all over that TEC cooler.
