Computer PSU's and Peltier elements? Answered
Hey, I have 2 158W Peltier elements, that I would like to mount to some CPU-heatsinks, and power with an old 400W PSU.
Can I "just do that"? There seams to be some caveats with how these units draw power AFAIK.
Also, does anyone have any experience with how much heat displacement is needed to not just ending up frying the unit?
Any suggestions on what heatsink to pair them with, and how strong a resistor to put on them?
I want to use them at the maximum power I can get them to run with continuously for up to 2 hours.
I have way too limited experience with electronics, and only a week to build my project, so I kind of have to go with the simplest approach here :(
