Hey Trichinosis,

I do not think that you read me right. The PELTIER cools the processor, the water cools the peltier, and the air cools the water system and the box? But if you are in a project, then it is not your money? so why worry, except that the project has to work.

I was not criticising, just adding to what you had posted.......there are those who would want to overclock to extremes, just for the hell of it?........you can always re-use the Peltier, and could probably build one for around $600......but that would require a fair old power supply, and some engineering skills?

My cousin and I were kind of looking at a stable system in a commercial box? That I guess at about $2600

Yes you can do things cheaper...............didn't I mention heat pipes?
