What do u think of that? I mean i finally got my 72W TEC and Alpha running at descent temp.. 15-18 IDLE 22 C 100% load in 500Mhz 2,1 Volt.
But what if i make dual TEC setup on my coldplate, like dual 50W or one 72 and one 50W what do u think of that, maybe it's a little to much eh? Have someone laborated with this be4?

Two 50W at 6V (50% of the Vmax) could be great. The TEC's efficiency increase with decreasing voltage. You could also use a potentiometer to tweak the voltage to the max.

Duckman,

What size POT would one use to vary the 12v down to say 5v?

I have had 2 Ice 71's on an alpha, outside the puter, just to test it, Even with the Pabst fans, the alpha couldn't keep up, I am in the process of making an inline, ( if the parts ever show ), with 2 frost 74's... water cooled of course , I'll let ya know how that goes.
