It is tough to get my point across using this damn english.

EDIT: conversely, cooling the center of the TEC more would yield a cooler core temp... (even if slightly) correct?
EDIT2: would this be an appropriate application of the radius?
I Understand what your saying. I am just not certain it would make a substantial difference. Not even sure how to test that.
