I found some at digi key from laird there a little high we can hope that means even better quality. rolleyes.gif

Not impressed at all with that site.

It's like going through a maze to find what you want.

I would agree, but the amount of products is so large, I don't know how they could arrange it better.. rolleyes.gif

that is where I got my resistors from I knew exactly what I needed and found them very quick. wink.gif

I ordered my Laird TECs from digikey. They seem like quite good quality but they are made in China and exported. Digikey didn't pack mine properly for shipping so they were in a mess when they arrived and some were chipped.

Coincidentally I just bought another lot of 10 biggrin.gif

@OCAddict

I was reading that you where running a test to see how long it will take the AS5 to burn in.

well do you ever run the cold side water loop when the PC system is off and the TEC's are not active?

the reason I ask is that the cold side water loop, stays cold, but if you run that loop with nothing but the pumps it should warm up to 40C are better. doing this will allow the AS5 to burn in on the cold side water blocks and the cold side of the TEC's. it's not perfect but I could not find another way to burn my own loops in.

You can disconnect all TEC on that loop and then just hook up one TEC with polarity reversed so the hot side will be on the cold side. You should monitor the temp in case it heat up too fast, use lower voltage like 5v should be safe.

Actually after seeing I got absolutely zero response or interest in running the tests, I saw no reason to invest my time into doing it just for my own curiosity.

Many do not think Artic Silver 5 has anything to offer these days but from my own experience using it, after it has time to fully cure it will even beat the temperature results of some of the best TIM out there that requires zero cure time.

That's information I already know as it has done it time and time again, it's one of the only TIMs available in this world that gets better results over time of use.

But I don't run AS5 on my peltiers I run either Artic MX4 or Timtronics Grey Ice 4200 as they are both excellent for peltiers.

As far as testing AS5 cure in, since I saw no interest at all at the time of posting and even days later, I abandoned doing it.

But thanks for this post of yours, at least someone read it! rolleyes.gif

wow, I did not realize it was that bad. here some food for thought for all those who think AS5 is beyond it's day.

the company that makes it still will not lower the price on this product, ever wonder why?
the answer is simple it is the most expensive TIM on the market because it is also the best preforming TIM on the market.
if there was a product on the market better, AS5 would have dropped in price already.
just like any other product on the market, if you have the best of the best you can charge a premium price for that product and people will still pay it.
I have tried many types of TIM over the years, but I still come back to AS5, and I keep asking myself, why did I waste my money on another cheap TIM again? redface.gif

It's usually the marketing hype of new TIM, or the reviewers plugging the product because their hands were greased tempting them to lean the review the products way.

In most cases the only way to really know the truth is test it yourself, then you'll 100% know the truth for sure and no one will be able to convince you otherwise.

Artic Silver 5 is expensive simply because it is made of 99.9% pure silver Ag 47, and silver is the highest thermal conductor of all the elements on the periodic table.

Speaking of thermal compounds, What is the ideal way of applying it to a TEC ? I guess putting a pea sized spot in the middel of the TEC will not ensure it reaches evenly accross the entire surface. Not sure i did it right either, i scraped it evenly accross the entire TEC so there wasnt much excess com pound left.

Any recommendations ?
