Steve, I chose to buy a ASI294MC (the uncooled version), for my EAA setup. The uncooled version offers some advantages for EAA, like not needing a cooling chip power supply, nor having to worry about the uneven cooling of the chip producing gradients. It offers great sensitivity and well depth, with low noise.
For true EAA use, as an adjunct to visual observation, cooling is simply not needed, as most of your frames or subs will be of very short duration (allowing Sharpcap to align and live stack each one).
The only reason you might want cooling is if you plan to stray into the world of very long sub imaging at some point. Just my opinion.
