    Help with Kryotherm Software

    Hey guys,
    Ive been fiddling around with the Kryotherm software (http://www.kryotherm.ru/?tid=29) and was wondering if anyone could help me out.
    Does anyone know if there is a module in the software that is similar to this:

    Also if any of you have any tips or tricks I should know about I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Wouldn't it be much simpler just to look at the product list ??

    What you mean the Kryotherm site or TEC's in general ?

    If you mean TEC's in general your best bet is to read all the stickies also this is extrememly useful :-
    http://www.melcor.com/handbook.html.

    You need to be sure of the limitations of TEC's
    1.) General layman theory and actual practise are 2 completely different things when trying to integrate TEC'S into your setup. Listen to the people that know... not those who think they know.
    2.) You will probably spend more money than you first thought.
    3.) AMD quad CPU's are a step to far especially if OC'd.
    4.) Majority of TEC's CANNOT be passively cooled.
    5.) A good understanding of water cooling is useful.
    6.) Don't even consider stacking TEC's (cascade/multi-stage.)..."to get more cooling", ignore anyone that suggests it. They don't understand how TEC's work.
    7.) TEC's will generally easily go below ambient so condensation/Insulating are concerns. Can be avoided using a TEC controller.
    9.) Uncontrolled CPU mounted TEC's will frequently go sub zero when CPU under no load.
    10.) Non-working/damaged TEC's are fantastic insulators and when mounted on your CPU, your CPU will burn out sharpish.
    11.) Depending on their usage or misusage TEC's can "die" easily keep this in mind with point 10 !
