I read some where that the cold side of the TEC doesn't really need to be fully covered. I have no other idea on how to keep that TEC on the cooler with the cold plate. That Adhesive that I bought is used on coolers where the heat piped and the plates are put together so I don't see why that wouldn't work. Plus the sensor that goes on the bottom on the cold plate on the stock ChilTEC is stuck on with that stuff also. Thats what Ulta Products told me. Because I have broke 8 of those sensors and I have bought about 20 of them from DigiKey.com. to replace them for the Ultra display Temp reader.
Where can I buy a proper cold plate. I see one on CrazyPC. Where do you buy your stuff. If you can send me a link or a phone number I'lll buy what ever you tell me to buy.
Also when I had the Chiltec with the 50W TEC with a straight 12V line on it the temps where lower then the 100W TEC in it the same way. There are no numbers on it to tell what kind of TEC it is but I can see that it has a lot more peltiers then the 100w does. If you hold it up against a light the 50w has more of them then the 100w. They are smaller in the 50w then the 100w. Does that mean the stock one is stronger? The 50w has 200 Peltiers in it. The 100w has less then that but they are bigger then the 50W
Do you have a phone number? If you can Text me, I have a iPhone and I hate refreshing this screen to see if you replied yet? Here is my number if you feel like Texting me (904)599-7274. Please no one just text me out of no where, please.
The pictures I just posted are the 2 50w TEC running instead of the 50w ontop and the 100w on the bottom, like before. The bottom one is getting 7v. That was only running for 6 minutes and as you can see that's alot of ice in such a short time. Under the electrical tape you can see there is a sensor under that and it reads -3.0 and the other sensor on the cooler for the display unit reads 16C. You can see that sensor in the first picture with the 3 wires and that white Arctic adhesive. That's the one that matters because if that raises then this shouldn't work.

Where in the world are you ? in New Zealand
You can get a 50x50 cold plate here
it would be nice if it was thicker but it will do the job
Yes you need to cover all of the TEC like zipdogso said
Each Couple passes current though it but the amount of current through each Couple varies depending on a few things.
This means the magnetic field of each Couple changes as the current flowing though it changes . This means the attraction and repulsion of the magnetic fields between all the couples changes causing them to vibrate
This is why you need to clamp them so they dont move.
AS i've stated before the "50watt" TEC that comes with the Ultra ARE NOT necessarily 50watts of Q
. Ultra quotes the electricity consumed on their website NOT the heat moved.
SO it's highly possible that the TEC that comes with the Ultra could be more powerful in Q than the 100watts of Q you bought.
Like zipdogso said they could have different input voltages too
Meaning when you apply your 12 volts to each of them the 12 volts input is a different % of Umax. This change will effect anything but also the DELTA .
So you could have a 25 wattQ max TEC running at 100% of Umax that will result in MUCH lower UNLOADED temps than a 1000wattQ at 1 % of Umax
your last paragraph doesn't really show much cos those temps are unloaded so they are irrelevant cos they're not taking into the load of the CPU. The Lowest UNLOADED temps doesn't mean it'll be the lowest temp when fully loaded
