I've been looking for a cheap and affordable way to use a water chiller to oc my rig. I came across this (http://www.novatecproducts.com/iceprobe.htm)and I'm wondering if I can use it. Honestly, it seems too good to be true to me. It doesn't use a compressor so I don't have to worry about the longevity of the device, it comes with a controller for an automatic on/off cycle, and it consumes a relatively low amount of power. What are your thoughts on it?

The only thing you have to worry about a TEC cooler is the fact it can chill below ambient temperatures, which means you run the risk of condensation.

I plan to get neoprene foam or something similar to that to insulate the mobo and other stuff.

Are you sure that's ESD safe?

Neoprene sheets are sold at frozencpu so its a pretty safe bet that its ESD safe.

If a lot of air is moving inside the cabinet, the condensation problem is mostly going to come after the computer is shut down, I think.
