could you photograph the gluing procedure so it will be more clear? maybe a drawing of what areas to put the thermal paste and where to put the adhesive

I guess the thermal epoxy alone, doesn't last long as using both the epoxy and paste.

you forgot to mention the thermal paste $6 and thermal epoxy $12-$14 and the clamp you used appears to be an old much more piece which would be hard to purchase for $10 and to make a proper copper base and clamp is costly much more than $10 if you are buying materials of the thickness needed. imho the copper base and clamp is the KEY part.

i've made several of these (even water cooled) and honestly would NEVER make another one for the following reason.

i strongly suggest to everyone to simply purchase one of CRAZY RONNY's coolers available in another thread in the for sale forum.

His are $99 shipped until end of august i believe * to save $10-$15 dollars it is just not worth it. especially if you live in an area that gets very hot.
crazy ronny's will work in high heat conditions very nicely.

I used a copper clamp on one of mine and a aluminum on another. The copper would stay cooler longer but it took a lot longer to cool than the aluminum one. Yes I forgot to mention the price of the paste and epoxy.

a few thoughts. there are numerous types of peltiers (sealed, non-sealed, different amp ratings, different recovery, efficiency, etc). it's more than just getting one of the commonly used 40x40mm chips. as far as the clamps go, copper is good for the cold side as it conducts the cold better. aluminum is good for the hot side as it dissapates heat well. the hardest part to get right is the clamp itself. i took a trinity motor cooler and chopped one in half (2 dremel grinding blades later). it works well, but... given the hastle, cost, and fact that i now have one that works better, i probably wouldn't bother doing it again.

i got mine from p and c racing (http://www.pandcracing.com). beyond the fact i can frost my motor can/endbell, they got the clamp part 'right'. i do find that removing motor stickers also makes a noticeable difference.

Getting frosty does not mean that the cooler is Kicking butt. It just means that it has reached Dew Point. Temp guns only measure surface temp. Try wiping the ice off, then gun it.

porsche928gs- Who is the guy in your avitar? He looks Larry Ruby, but the pic is too small for me to be sure.

3 Racing clamp will work well. Only Cost $5 bucks on ebay. Just take off the fun. The top surface is flat no modification needed.
