    to find the amp rating of the 12 volt line on your psu, just look at the sticker on the side of it. 350watts is the psu's total power rating adding the 3.3v, 5v, and 12v lines together. if it is an enermax psu, go to the enrmax website and look up your model number. all the info you require will be there. you might want to look for a ham radio power supply for the pelts. it will be more expensive (~$100) but is more suited for use with pelts then a compter psu.

    Exclamation try watercooling

    check out the article on the home grown water cooler system $125 - $155 that's discussed at www.tomshardware.com there is also a link to a site that sells kits.

    your power on order looks ok to me. i turn my pump on first and then my cpu (w/fans). could you give me a link to that power supply? it looks like its got variable voltage, which would be good. i think your 156 watt TEC is rated for 16.1 amps, right? and you are only using that one? if this is true, then that power supply would be fine. that PSU is only rated for a constant draw of 22 amps, not 25, so you prpably wouldn't want to run another big TEC off of it, you only have 7 more watts after that first TEC. did you already buy the water blocks and pump? if not,then i highly recommend you go with the dangerden maze2-1 waterblock. it is designed to hold a pelt securely to the block an then the whole assembly is attached to the motherboard with screws. i use the regular maze2 without pelts and it is awesome. the pump i am using is an outdoor fountain pump i got at OSH for about $60. it is designed to pump alot of water really far, like 12 or 15 feet straight up. it is very good. i don't know about water cooling the video card. I have never done that. maybe try it like this:
    1. from pump to T connector
    2. from one end of T to the cpu
    3. from other end of T to the gpu
    4. from cpu to another T connector
    5. from gpu to the second T connector
    6. from the second T connector to the reservoir.
    7. the pump is in the resrvoir.

    um, i guess that is all i can think of right now.

    so you dont think i should run from one block to the other?? you think i should use t connectors?? i would think that would restrict flow a bit?? but then again the other way would give higher temps to what ever came second. also im going to use the danger den radiator..the 55 dollar cube one..do you think that will be enough to cool the water with both pelts?? yes ive already got the blocks on the way..but they do screw down! and for the ps are you talking about the 25 amper?? i only want that if i can run both pelts off it?/ yeesh my rooms gonna draw some power eh? if you go on ebay and search 25 amp power supply its the only one so..thats where i found it>....the pump im getting is the one that comes with the blizzard resevoir at overclockershideout..so will that one be enough for my stuff?? please take a look and let me know cause i want to make sure.....
    i dont want to buy all this stuff thats capable of doing twice as good as ill have it doing. earlier in this thread i have the setup im getting and where im getting it from if you want to take a look..i know i have a crapload of questions but i dont want to kill anything because already within the first 4 months of building this computer ive already killed 2 axia 1.33's and 2 ka266rs..so i dont want to try watercooling and kill something else ..... however i do want extreme speed.. speaking of ..with that setup what temps would i be looking at and in what range of speed would i be looking at??
    thank a ton man
