Comprehensive liquid and air cooling guides

As of December 2013, here are two complete reviews and comparisons between the best CPU coolers and also some water cooling action:

The Best CPU Coolers: 10-Way Roundup

Aftermarket CPU Cooling: Closed Loop Water Cooling vs. Air Cooling
Julio, have you or anyone, looked into peltier devices for cooling?You can get these devices on ebay for about $8 for 130 watt devices and up. I seen a 430 watt device for $36. It seems like this might be another way of cooling. Tthe device is perfect for the top of the CPU chip, about a little larger than 1.5" x 1.5". The biggest problem I see is that is does take a lot of current, the 430 watt version takes 27 amps at 10 to 16 volts, and they must be heat sinked on the hot side to prevent damage, they can only get so hot on that side although they can get hot enough to cook a can of soup. The cold side would go against the CPU, they really work well for coolers and such. Just wondered how they would do for a computer chip.
