Any recommendations ?

I apply mine with a polished copper pipe. Works really well to get a very very thin layer.

After that you are supposed to circle the TEC against the plate/block until you feel the resistance of the two surfaces rubbing against each other.

It's easy to do this badly and lose 10C.

I will try your approach when i receivers ny new TECs.

Application to a peltier is really the time excess doesn't matter simply because the pressure you will be applying will squeeze out all the excess TIM anyway, but I just use a TIM spreader initially applying and then smooth it out level and even with an old plastic card like a credit card.

Peltier is a completely different application than applying to a CPU heat spreader of which over the years I have tried many of the methods and finally settled on a very thin line directly over the CPU die alignment underneath the heat spreader and on an Intel CPU the core is centered under the heat spreader perpendicular to the wings on the heat spreader.

That's a nice idea, Thanks for sharing that! thumb.gif

This will depend on the type of TIM. For thicker TIMs it's very important not to use too much.

That's true!

Running hot water over the tube of even the thicker TIMs for awhile and heating up the TIM before application, will make the TIM much easier to use and spread out.

Just received my two TEC's from Wellentech today - will be installing them tonight.

It's funny, how you can see the thermocouplers though the ceramic plates - this you can't
on the eBay TEC's - or at least not the TEC1-12730 I got previously.

Hoping it will be good biggrin.gif

Cheers Toe

Excellent! Can't wait to see where you get with this biggrin.gif
I'll be living my dreams out through you until I catch up on some other expenses, so don't let me down thumb.gif

if you don't mined would you kind of clean the old TEC's up a little, and take pictures of both the flat sides of the TEC's?
I would like to see the damage on the TEC's, if there is any. thumb.gif

I will, i think i will also be using a heat plate to even the pressure to avoid cracking the tec due to screw Holes.
