Nope, that will come with the high-end package. It's actually cut into the aluminum and then has a grill placed behind it with a series of LEDs.

Any word on the noise level of the TEC vs. regular liquid cooling?

to use a TEC you have to have watercooling also, so you will have the same noise, from fans, water pump(s)

Yes but do the TEC's themselves have a "noise" output?

Also I would imagine the fan speeds may be tuned differently for TEC H20 vs regular LC?

The TEC has a hot side. The cooler the hot side is, the lower your cold side will be.

The fan speeds are actually being fine tuned now by us, but, take note, the faster the fans spin, more airflow through the radiators, the cooler the system will run. Yet, that does mean a louder system.

When you LC you still have the option of using a low RPM fan.  With the TEC does the system require the fans to run at very high RPMs?  I'm willing to sacrifice some cooling for peace and quiet, but if the TEC requires extreme cooling from the fans than so be it.

Basically what we want to know is compared to a regular LCS system is this new one louder, or quieter or about the same?

The system will be fairly quiet under normal use. When the temps of the hot side get above a threshold, the fans will kick up in speed to maintain a target temperature for the cold side on the fluid. Under normal use, the system will be just as loud as a normal quiet liquid cooled system, and can become as loud as a liquid cooling system with high airflow fans when stressed heavily.

The TEC has no moving parts unlike phase change cooling. The TEC itself makes zero noise.

I promise.

We delayed the launch because we didn't want it to get lost with the GTX 580/CES Best of Innovations announcements by us.

I will be happily placing orders Monday for those that are interested in the cooling system. My extension is 115 for those that are looking to reach me for that purpose.

They're ready to go so I'd bet DS will have them ready if you order now.
