Basically if you want a pelt that dissipates a lot of heat you are going to need a few things.

1. A very large Power supply. Probably 500+ watts or a seperate power supply for just the peltier.

2. Cooling for the pelt. To cool a decent watt pelt you will need water cooling, which is a whole nother thing. You can air cool some peltiers, but not ones with the wattage you will need to be worth it.

Unless you have tons of cash and time, I don't reccomend this. Get a good HSF like the Alpha 8045 and O/C your proc with air cooling. You should get to 1600 at least I'd say.

Stay away from peltiers ....

They are CPU killers , you can only feel tha pain when your own CPU will just stop booting ,with out any logical reason ..

If you buy a peltier is just matter of time to happen ..

I agree Sync, to run once safely I remember a guy coating his whole socket in silicone and waterproofing his mobo etc. hehe
