Active Cool Ac4g-d

Anybody had anything to do with the Active Cool AC4G regulated peltier thermoeletric cooler?

 

I just thought that a microprocessor controlled peltier (utilising a temp probe), was kinda' cool (excuse the pun :P) no more condensation issues :D

Any opinions/experiences you would like to offer?

 

 

BTW Although the P4/AMD64 platforms seem to be refered to frequently, they also make mention of the K7 @ the bottom of this page ;)

It's a cool idea, but it reminds me an awful lot of the Thermaltake Sub-zero kits, which absolutely sucked. I simply don't think it has enough dissipation...it's only rated for up to 122 watts (for the amd64 version). Aren't most commonly used pelts for cpus like 220 watts or so?

I know a Danger Den 122 watt will not cool my 3.2EE at full load 2 ver. of folding its at ambient temps in about 10 minutes, that was until it fried as some of you know, it cools good if you just let the pc set there and do nothing it will go a little below freezing -2c - -5c, I will not own another pelt, I am getting the same temps with just water cooling, of course this new one here may be better, but I would bet money its not.

Hmmmm... I had heard that the Sub-Zero kits sucked, but I thought that the fact that it was processor regulated would prevent freezing up (literally) ;)

 

122w insufficient? <_< this is only for my 2500+, I'm getting 38-41c on full load (air)... and thought I could shoot higher than 2.015 Ghz with something like that, have excellent temps and not have a noisy cooler to boot ;)

 

 

Edit:

 

Seems the AC4G is almost identical to TT's Sub-Zero G :O

 

Active Cool. Presently in a patent-pending stage, Active Cool manufactures the two piece component CPU cooling system under the name AC4G. ThermalTake has licensed the design from Active Cool and made their own product called the SubZero 4G.

 

Definitely NOT recomended for OC'ing :(
