I am looking at buying a DD MAZE 2.2(the socket A block that can hold 2 40MM tecs), but I don't want to have to invest in 24V pelts because I don't want to spend a ton of money on a 24V power supply when I have a PS that can power 2 122w 12V pelts; except the 122W 12V pelts are 48MM!!!
The only 40MM pelts are either to small power wise, or are 24V ones.
Anybody seen a 12V pelt in the 122W range that is 40MM?

Also much would it kill performance if I used a 24V pelt with 13.8 volts (I'm think that even with 2 pelts it would be pretty sucky performance.)

Tedist.com. I'm not sure if it's in stock, though. At 13.8 volts, you would be better off getting a 15 volt module. You would lose about 58% of your TEC's power. Even if you were to get a 122 watter, you would get about 51 watts of cooling
