Default Re: Thermoelectric Cooling

They're good because...
1. They can cool below the ambient temperature of the room
2. They are extremely reliable

They are bad because...
1. They are NOT efficient at all.
2. They require a LARGE amount of power to operate

You'd mainly use one because of the fact that they can cool below ambient temps. Being easier than LN2 setups (or similar setups like that) to both install and maintain, I guess they'd be good if you wanted to keep an extreme OC on your processor. Or lived somewhere where the temperature is always over 9000 degrees lol
