Peltier losing power

I had a 122 watt peltier in my system a while back and then took it out becouse it was running the processor at -15 C. I put it back in and now I am running at +18 C. What is the problem? It is flush with the cpu and the water is flowing fine, I am using the same pump and all. Could it be some kind of build up in the Tidal cooler?
I cleaned it out and all the other stuff and I cannot figure this one out? It has heat goop and all that, I double checked everything and I have no idea what the problem is.

I want it to run really cold now that I have taken every step to prepare for the condensation.
