I was wondering if anyone uses peltier coolers anymore. I had one a while back (P2 days) and it worked great. You could probably use it without a fan resulting in no noise coming from the cpu cooler. Has anyone tried this on the newer processors? Thanks.

SDDI is correct. The heat generated by a chip with a peltier element on it is greater than the heat generated by the chip alone. Peltiers are just used to get a greater thermal differential, like cooling the chip to sub-ambient temperatures. Chances are, if you tried running a peltier-heatsink combo without a fan, you'd end up burning out the element and the chip.
