Re: peltier junction

Does anyone have experience in using peltier junction as a heatsink? Well. A peltier junction doesn't eliminate the need for a heatsink. It makes one side of it cold and the other hot in proportional amounts. So if you're using the cold side of it to cool off something that's hot (like a processor)...

For those that don't know, MGC is the Midwest Gaming Classic, which is three days of gaming madness in Brookfield, WI (near Milwaukee). More info at their website . Hopefully this...

Bump! I've been looking around for an external SCSI CDROM, and it's proving difficult to find without spending way too much money. :?

Re: Alienware (Desktop or Laptop), which is better for me

The extra thermal display is primarily for looks. You can add it if you like the look of it. It doesn't really serve any functional need. I'd go for one of these two: Linksys E2500 Advanced Dual-Band N Router Linksys E4200 Maximum Performance Dual-Band N Router I'd get the E2500 if you're using most...

Re: Alienware (Desktop or Laptop), which is better for me

After re-reading my post, I wasn't all that clear. Have you considered building your own gaming desktop ? Don't try to build a laptop, if you decide you want a gaming laptop get the Alienware. The parts selection for building your own laptop is pretty limited, which takes away the primary reason of ...

Re: compatability between the Xbox 360 pro and the i Book g4
