    Socket 775 Insulation guide
    http://www.wintschlabs.com/ArcticWeb...75Install.html

    The wintsch Labs web site has finally been closed down so the insulation guide no longer works. But if you look in the phase section here. http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=104456 you will see several very nice guides. They insulate the same way we do with TEC. I for one really like Silencer's guide.


    Here is a new nice guide for insulating for a tec. also there is a link for the new eraser way to insulate

    Powering a TEC

    Please read and remember when dealing with a TEC!!!


    If you put a tec on a PC PSU your risking a fire because the wires are not able to handle the current the tec will draw. The wires on the tec are the same size when looking at them but they are tighter strands and many many more strands for each wire.
    PCP & C even states that there single +12v rail with 60A capable should not run a tec without cutting 6 12v lines and splicing them to the tec as well as 6 ground lines.
