I don't know what that power supply is, but ideal is this.
Variable 10-15V with a 10amp current rating. That will handle almost any peltier, and you'll be able to adjust the cooling by increasing/decreasing the voltage.

Unless your case is completely loaded with goodies, the Enermax should handle your pelt with no problems at all.

It depends on the Voltage/Wattage of your peltier, im not sure on the current if that power supply, but I know the Enermax 550Watt will handle most any peltier with 25Amps on the 12V line

Well o.k... I decided to go with the enermax 530 or whatever...


is it possible to hook up a switch of somesort between the 12v line and the heatsink.... so i can modify the current/power etc....?
