    Sandy Bridge Tec Water Block

    Well here is my newest water block

    Figured Id give xtremesystems tec forums some love.

    Pros:

    1. No insulation required. The controller is set to user selectable from 15-25ºc with an ambient hold. Just turn the dial to max, and it will hold ambients

    2. No special power supply to deal with, just plug it into your 6 pin pcie cable

    3. This thing has no problems being cooled by a cheap $150 Rasa Kit.

    4. The tec intercepts the heat load and sets the duty cycle to what is needed to cool the block to hold a very precise temp and increasing efficiency.

    Basically its setup is no harder than a setting up a standard waterblock.


    Display shows the following AT = Ambient Temp BT=Block temp TT=Target Temp and DC= Duty cycle the tec runs at.

    How does it perform with the TEC completely off? Just out of curiosity for worst case scenario planning.

    I have wondered about this too, probably act as an insulator and overheat the cpu even faster.

    Ultra - does your controller throttle back on the TECs when your on light load? ie reduce power consumption when your not benching or gaming? I reckon the dual pelt will get more attention than the single as people wanting this will want to overclock it as far as they can and still have cold temps. When the TEC's cooling capacity is exceeded do temps skyrocket or just slowly creep up?

    umm this isn't my block or controller Aussie

    however i will answer on mindchills behave

    yes the controller will throttle back at light loads

    Sure more plets /TEC = more Qmax which is pretty much always better

    According to mindchill he has managed to cool an overclocked i5 as it's wattage is relatively low when overclocked.


    if for some reason power is lost to the TEC's the TEC will still conduct heat , though poorly. so your pc wont explode if this happens. mind you if it happens when the cpu is loaded the temps will go crazy causing a crash. if you buy a QUALITY it's unlikely this will happen . not sure if the price included the TEC or not. i assume not based on it's cost.

    I just went thru the site and the price with a controller would be in the region of around 240-250 USD...which is still not bad.

    Yeah sorry Im reading multiple threads and replied incorrectly.

    Arent all pelts made in China anyway? Maybe your US source just tests them before selling them?
