Upon closer inspection, I believe I'm looking at a Peltier cooler.

Interesting! Could you post a photo?
I've sold my 4D/35 years ago, but AFAIR there was only a cheap small fan, like from the i486-era, on the CPU.

Wonder why SGI ever brought out this equipment while the cooling was so clearly inadequate.
The panel-mounted fan was really just here to stir the air around the CPU and prevent a hotspot from building up, nothing more
My PI's gone for some time now, the power supply's caps were dead, and the last time it took 50-60 on/off cycles before it powered up...couldn't be bothered about changing caps as i also had a pristine Indigo to play with, and the PI's PSU was really tough to dismantle (gave it a try).
