Hot Hardware give us a look at this cool piece of kit:

The Ultra ChillTec Thermo-Electric CPU Cooler is a bit more than an oversized aftermarket cooler.  This unit marries two technologies into a single package, teaming a heat-pipe type cooler with a peltier and an oversized fan to offer extreme cooling potential.  To help facilitate its features properly, Ultra also integrates an external control module that's programmed to control the cooler's functions and report on the current health of the CPU.

Read the full review at Hot Hardware:

Based on its relatively unique design and a rather hefty pricepoint, we were eager to delve into the design and performance of the Ultra ChillTec Thermo-Electric CPU cooler.  Our goal is to see how well the unit performs compared to stock cooling and to assess the advantages of adding a Peltier to the unit's overall design.  At the end of our tests and evaluation, we'll look whether or not the designers of the ChillTec Thermo-Electric CPU cooler came up with a truly innovative product or rather a flashy product that doesn't quite live up to its potential.
