    I cant spell it but - a peltier would do the trick

    Basically when you apply voltage across this alloy (I think) one side gets freezing cold, the other burning hot. The warmer side gets a heat sink, while the cool side is attached to the equipment

    Thermo Electric Coolers use the Peltier effect to become a thermal pump, sucking heat from one end to the other, and adding some of its own because of inefficiencies. Using a pelt will "supercool" the amp, but it will dump a lot more heat in to the ambient surroundings unless its got a fancy cooling system (ie watercooling).

    I built a water cooled 40 watt peltier cooler a few years ago. It turned a 1 gallon bucket of ice water into warm water in less than an hour. On the cold side, when you drop a drip of water, it turned into ice instantly.

    Any computer MODs website try www.coolerguys.com or do a google search for pelter elements, you should be able to find tons of stuff on it. Word of advice them damn lil things are extremely hardcore piece of hardware. You better know what you are doing before messing with one. They also require LARGE ammounts of power.

    Good luck.
