    Cold plate and peltier on the T-Bird Help

    I was also told not to use a pelt and cold plate as it woild apply to much pressure to the chip with my alpha cooler. It might fracture the wafer. What gives. Thanks, John

    That isn't likely true, but you don't want to use a pelt on a heatsink because expecially with a T-bird putting out around 60 watts and so you need a peltier of over 60, a heatsink can never disippate the 120+ watts of heat.

    You can get a variable clip but what warhorse said is correct. To be effective, you need a TEC with a wattage of over 92 watts on any T-Bird at or over ~1GHz w/1.85 volts. You would want water to cool that, you won't see favorable results with air cooling.
