    A little cooling fan is OK for a little overclocking, says Ultra Products, but serious processor pushers had better check out Ultra's first CPU cooling system. The ChillTec Thermo Electric CPU Cooler brings a combination of thermoelectric and heat-pipe cooling to Intel Socket 775 or AMD Socket AM2/754/939/940 motherboards. The cooler features a solid-state active heat pump or thermoelectric cooler (TEC) sandwiched between two copper plates, each with four heat pipes leading to a large, fan-cooled radiator.

    To avoid condensation issues when the CPU is cooled below room temperature, only the pipes on the "colder" side of the TEC function until the processor reaches a trigger temperature. Then the ChillTec's control unit applies power to the TEC to bring the pipes on the "hot" side of the CPU device into play. The 5 by 4 by 5.8-inch cooler draws 50 watts under 100 percent load, dropping to 28 watts at 50 percent and 5 watts at zero load. It's priced at $150.
