The Cooler Master V10 200+W Hybrid T.E.C.
From the side of the V10 you can see the progression from the Z600R to the V8 with its black shroud, to the evolution of this behemoth of a cooler with the T.E.C. portion being at the lower left. You can see three separate sets of fins here and from the left they are for cooling the T.E.C., through a fan and into the second set dedicated to the CPU base, then to the third set which is also for the CPU, but acts additionally to cool the RAM as well.
The rear of the cooler or the air outlet side shows that the V10 has quite a large intake area that starts by cooling the T.E.C. radiated fins first. At the bottom is another view of the peltier and how it's mounted to the V10.
The top of the V10 Hybrid is similar to the others with its chrome "bling" factor, but on a much larger shroud this time. Keep in mind the right half of this cooler is cooled with a 120mm fan, just to give a realistic perspective.
Here we have a look at the inbound side of the V10. You can see that the air gets pulled through both sections of this cooler at once. This set up allows good flow to the CPU specific sections of the cooling fins, but leaves the T.E.C. cooler to be the last in line for cool air.
Standing this cooler up to get a look at the underside shows that this cooler follows its name sake as it does include 10 heat pipes. It is also more apparent as to the three sections of the cooler I have been describing.
The heat is transferred from the CPU to this flat, almost mirror like and plated, copper base. You can see there are traces of the milling process visible in the base, but this is minor and should have no ill effects on the transfer of heat.
Here we see a close-up of Cooler Master's built-in temperature activation module. The 70W T.E.C. needs a temperature of 25° Celsius to even start to become active. Anything lower than 25° in temperatures causes the T.E.C. to rest in an idle, non-powered state. The connection on this side is to the actual peltier; the power connection to supply this is located on the other side.
From this angle you can get a really clear idea of just how the T.E.C. does its job on the cold side of things. Just under the plate with the four Phillips head screws lies the cold side of the pelt. This cools the plate and transfers that into the four attached pipes, which in theory should aide in cooling the CPU, due to the laws of thermal dynamics.
