Question Ultra ChillTec Thermo Electric CPU Cooler

Ultra ChillTec Thermo Electric CPU Cooler $139.99



Is this worth the money? What are some good air cooling alternatives? Just trying to get some feedback on this unit. Thanks.

You can almost go cheap water for that price. Pass.

For $140 Bro, do what I'm doing. Wait a little and put that cash towards a nice, potent but inexpensive C2D set up. I'm guessing over the next 2 months or so, I'll be able to snag proc, ram and mobo for under $400 easy, then I'll worry about cooling it.

Just my 2c.

it only dissipates 50W max. dont bother with it if you want to OC.

if you run stock, then a stock fan should be good lol.


for you, i recommend a Thermalright XP-120. i have an XP-90 and it keeps my OC'd X2 3800 nice and chilly

that thing is awful. TECs and air cooling don't mix.

Looks like I'll be ordering this;

Tuniq Tower 120 Ultra Silent Universal CPU Cooler - Rev 2

Finding that Thermalright XP-120 in stock is nearly impossible.
