    Peltiers...What are they good for and how to use them?

    Thermoelectric couples are cool, (pun intended) but unless you are looking for a low noise solution (which you will pay for, as your WC loop to cool the TECs will have to be quiet as well), a vapor phase chiller is the best way to go, more efficient, more cooling power, lower temperature, and...

    Google: Bing Is Cheating, Copying Our Search Results

    Definitely one of the funniest supposedly accurate and or substantiated online reports I have ever seen. Using the same browser? Of course it would pay off to use browser history in your search results, you would be silly not to. /thread

    Temperature does not change

    +1 Do not worry about it, I have had similar issues in the past. RMA the processor if you are troubled by it.

    Will adding spare 8800GTS 512 be worth it?

    Almost certainly, an 8800GTS is fairly powerful when compared to a GTX 260! Also, consider the draw backs, if any.
