I just purchased an aluminum heatsink that I am using to "wick" away heat from a Peltier; however, I was wondering how I can pull heat from the hot side of the peltier quicker.
I have purchased large, small, medium sized aluminum heatsinks and have not been able to explain why one works better than the other. This is the root of the problem: what determines how fast a heatsink can wick heat away from the hotside of the Peltier?
I was thinking adding copper heat pipes, such as the ones on a laptop heatsink-fan combinations; however, I would need to thermally attach the copper heatpipes to the same heatsink to cool them. I am afraid this might kill the efficiency of the heatsink.
Thank you, and I am looking forward to hearing your suggestions
