What is the optimal power of peltie for ThB 850@1000 (7,5x133), so that i don't becom a condensation and i can't for this moment use a water cooling. At this time with heatsink CPU temp at idle is 40-44c, but when it works it's about 48-52c.
What can you recomendate?
72-85Watts is what most people use, but you will still get a little condensation. Just cut out a hole in a sqaure piece of neoprene, the thick kind and put in on the socket. That would work just fine.
well for a t-bird 156 or 172 would be optimal but and this is a big but you would need a huge psu a water cooling setup and you would have to prevent condensation. I would recomnd getting a water cooling setup then starting to look a more powerful pelts
