Would a 220 watt pelt work with my psu?

The spec for the pelt is 220 watt peltier, 50x50mm, 24A, 15.2 VDC >67C
I have a Antec PP235X. I have two psus in my comp and this has been a dedicated psu for my current 120 watt pelt. I know that I won't be running the 220 watt pelt at full power because I can only put out 12v. I have no idea how many amps my psu has, even while looking at the spec sheet.:p
Thanks for any help.

Running a 220 watt pelt at 12 volts kind of defeats the purpose since this halves the pelts heat pumping power.

I'm happy with it at around 170watt when it runs at 12v.:D

Am I correct when I say that its at 170 watt with 12v?

You are way low on the amperage on that supply. The 12v line maxes at 8 amps. The 12v on the pelts what, 15.1 or so voltage is not going to be a problem but the 8amps on the psu vs. the 24 amp draw is going to be a problem. One of these should work nicely. 32 amp constant and 36 amp surge. Dial voltage adjustment. Max voltage is 13.8v.
