submerge whatever you need to cool in mineral oil. get it at the hardware store. it's cheap and won't conduct electricity. heat on the other hand, will be convected away wonderfully.

A Peltier cooler is a very neat invention, but for many applications it's still far too complicated. (You need a properly attached and sufficiently large heat sink and perhaps a fan.)

Instead, I suggest you take a look at evaporative cooling. You can buy polyacrylate powder on Ebay for $1.31/oz or less, or even use something as simple as moist sand or a wet towel.

What are you trying to cool? If it is a Processor then you would need something not too wide and tall, if you where cooling some building you would need something else...
