Default Watercooling a peltier?

hi, I just bought a Thermaltake Bigwater SE water-cooling kit and wondered if this has enough capacity to cool a 172W
TEC. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Dunno if its "powerfull" enough, but you got too keep in mind it has to cool the 172W from your pelt PLUS the heat of your cpu.
So your kooling kit has to be able to be alble to cool 250'ich watt.
For the question if your set is able to do this i would wait for other reply's becouse i have no experience with a kit like yours.
EDIT: I'm afraid a single radiatior is not gonna be able to dispatch the heat.


Greets,
Sharp.

I doubt it'll be able to cool the whole thing (+plus you'll probably need another (bigger) waterblock so that it cover the whole TEC (usualy 50x50 if I'm not mistaking).

260w is mostly used to cool cpu's, so I don't know whether the 172w is going to be good enough for your cpu (if overclocked high).

P.s.

small typo is guess

The 172W will get him under ambient temps, but I don't think it's going to get him below zero degrees Celcius. Not even when idle. Load temps will suck Keep in mind that 172W off cooling power is the maximum it can do and then it will have 0c difference between cold side and hot side. Bear in mind that the TEC adds a lot of heat and u will get much higher die-temps then cooling your Atlon with stock heatsink
The less it has to cool, the more power it has for getting temps low. For a good margin he will be better of with a 240W TEC with today's CPU's.

But, if u allready have the watercooling, and u allready have the TEC, why not just try out Don't forget the 'rulez' of TEC cooling, we don't want u to burn down your house!

I've just hooked up the Thermaltake kit using a "resevoir" that is cooled by my mini-fridge. No condensation so far after 5 hours. Temps are:
idle : 63F/17.22C
load : 95F/35C
Cpu is clocked at 2.85ghz
How about a 240w tec now?

Good temps, what voltage are you pushing through the CPU?

chilling the TEC with that fridge? Make sure your reservoir is big enough so your water is not going to heat up so quickly. I've done the same, look for me thread somewhere here on madschrimps.

How about buying a better pump, and adding videocard and chipset waterblocks.
The water is still very cold even after coming off the cpu. If jmke is still watching this thread I am putting ~1.68v depending on how acurate onboard the onboard sensors are. Idle : 58f\16c load : 97f/36c
after getting all of the air out of the lines.
cpu is stable in all applications, including cpu burn-in 1.01, except for prime95.
