    How do you think this beverage chiller would do if I were to it use as a CPU cooler for my laptop?

    Dumb idea. Condensation would be a problem, plus I am sure it would not be enough to keep the CPU cool. Peltiers drop to sub-zero temperatures to achieve this.

    Some more reasoning as to why it won't work:
    1) No way for it to dissipate the processor heat. In principle, expecting it to keep it cool is like expecting a heatsink to keep it at room temperature.

    2) The Chiller is meant to keep a beverage at room temperature down to 45F, and that beverage does not put off any heat. A CPU puts off heat, and when not cooled gets ridiculously hot very quickly.

    A beverage is liquid and a cpu is solid, they act differently.
