Well, you'll need a new PSU to supply that sucker. I'm not sure, but I think most of them are 24V, or possibly 17V or something like that. You do, of course, need to find which tec you're going with before deciding on the PSU. You'll want to get one with enough voltage and that will have a bit extra amperage.

I don't know where to get any of the PSU stuff, but for the tec you might consider DangerDen, I know they sell some. You could always do a search at google.com for "tec" or "peltier" to get some more options.

You might consider a 172 (or even bigger if you can find it) cause you wanna have some headroom for when you start getting really hot at those higher temps.

I don't really know about the temps you'll get, so I don't know if you need to worry about condensation or not. You'll probably wanna seal your mobo up, just in case.
