Does anyone happen to know what kind of peltier a 230, 250, or 300 watt dedicated power supply can handle if modified?

I have an old 250 watt AT supply that I have running my 85 watt pelt without even breaking a sweat. at 12 volts an 85 watt pelt draws just a tad over 7 amps and my supply is rated at 10. At 12 volts a 152 watt pelt draws about 12.6 amps.

I bought my pelt. from leufkentechnologies, I was thinking it was 86w but must be 85w. Whats the difference. I'm very happy with it. I'm running it at 12v's. so Its actually only running around 65w's running at 12v's. Thats why I settled on the 85w. I was gonna get the 72w.

Same here, I bought mine from the heatsink factory. I thought it was a 12 volt unit but it's actaully a 15 volt unit but it's working ok for what I want.
