    How the hell are you going to cool a 136W TEC without water?
    You people who think you know everything really piss people like me off who really do know everything.

    I would try the 1/8" for now, that one is in stock. Just really monitor core temp fluctuations! Here is the link...

    Or how are you gonna power it? What voltage and what kind of amphere are we talking about? A peltier that powerful is hard to control ... if anything goes wrong, everything is pretty much toast (ask Melvin Tong).
