make sure you hook that thing up correctly. A peltier works great in reverse, too. The first time I booted with the watercooled peltiers I saw 177F CPU temps because I had the peltiers backward in the waterblocks while I matched up the red and black wires.

Any yellow wire coming from the power supply should be +12v. The red ones are +5v.

turn it on while you hold it between both palms. It will be obvious then. No, it won't burn you..if you're quick.
