What can I use to seal my peltier (to make it potted) , can I just use some HIGH temp silicone?

Also where can I get some dielectric grease?!?

I am itching to get the pelt on the p/// 700...

yea..i read somewhere that high temp silicon is what you use. i think it was octools. it's kinda red looking.

as for diaelectic grease....i ordered some from swifttech.

The high temp silicon is what Leufken recommends for his. I believe he says to go with an automotive one.

You can buy dielectric grease at any automotive store. a small tube for about maybe $2.00 or less.

I know, I just found it at Pep-Boys, right after ordering it online for like 7bucks with shipping...

hehe...sorry about that. <gulp> swifttech ended up being backordered on another item for 2 to 3 weeks. kinda irked me that they didnt post the backorder on their site or contact me. anyway, i finally had my order canceled and saved some money on the dielectric grease in the process. =) will head up to pep boys.
