    Well i was planning on making my next computer "flashy" so i don't think insualtion all over the place and a big freezer next to it will be very appealing. I think that thermoelectric might just be the way to go..as it is more intact.

    Also i found all the parts i would need for thermoelctric for under $150 so it should work out well..

    Thanks for all your help/opinions.

    o.O, flashy rig!!!

    I'll be waiting for pics :D

    Also, remember to take pics as you assemble the TEC in, it'll make a great how-to tutorial.

    Well, after 2 weeks, 5 Rma's, and 2 thousand dollars...I still don't have all the parts for my new computer, so i have decided not to do thermoelctric for 3 reasons.

    1). I dont want to risk a brand new computer
    2). I dont have anymore money
    3). Im tired of waiting for my damn computer.

    I have gone through 2 mobo's, 2 psu's and an lcd monior. The box that the monitor was literally crushed into 1/4 the size the box should have been. Unfortunatly i wasn't home to reject the ups package. After this..I feel like barfing everytime i see a UPS truck drive by. I have no respect for ups anymore..as they take **** care of their packages. My freind ordered a video card that was sent through them and he said that the card was in 100 peices when recieved. Horrable company..I will be using fedex for now on..as i have never had a problem with them.
