Thermo-Electric Cooling is becoming commonplace, as CPUs grow hotter.  While some chips have been designed to utilize lower power settings, once an overclocker get’s hold of it the heat shoots up again.  OCIA reviews the ChillTec Thermo Electric CPU Cooler, a blend of heatpipes and a TEC.  The hotter it gets, the better this cooler works.
“Here we get a look at the heatpipes and the TEC which is sandwiched between two copper plates. Each plate has four heatpipes leading to the upper deck of aluminum fins that are cooled by the 92mm fan. Initially, the CPU is cooled by the “heatsink” – that is, the heatpipes and aluminum fins. When the CPU is put under load, power is applied to the TEC and the CPU is further cooled by the cold side of the thermo electric cooler. The hot side of the TEC is cooled by the second set of heatpipes.”
