Cool Peltiers ?

Hi,
Any of you folks found a store in Canada that sells some modest peltiers, Like 60 watt on 14 or 21 volts? I was thinking of cooling the resivoir down using a couple of them.
The Case has plenty of air blowing around, keeps pretty steady at 26 C , 80 percent load on everything.
Whats your take on this, is it worth it to add them or not?

Now... this is something I wouldn't mind trying to cool the liquid down! What A BEAST! Boreas 12 TEC Chiller However @ $ 449....it's a little too expensive!

Hmm- if that things works well enough to be worth it, then your water will be cold enough to create condensation on the outside of your waterblocks- I'd like to see a review

I wouldn't expect a 60W pelt would do a whole lot, honestly. Maybe compensate for the system's heat dump at idle? And if the pelt was only cooling the reservoir, it's entirely possible that you'd never see sub-ambient temps anywhere near any circuitry.

Of course, that doesn't mean I'd be willing to try it on my system...

That coolit system comes with a control unit that monitors the temps, doesnt let it get cold enough to produce condensation
