comment Does a Peltier Thermoelectric layer make a good regulator for LN2 heat-sink interfacing
A resistive heater isn't so crazy, however this would at least be coupled with a static insulator, so such a device would be used minimally. The problem I see with dry ice is it is solid, so the interface with heat sink is a problem without an intermediary liquid. LN2 is considered the best heat sink with respect to density.

Thanks, some helpful information there. CPU is an incorrect assumption as the device to be cooled - best to describe it generically as the "Heat Load". I think you answered my question, one could insert an additional static insulator to enable a warmer Peltier, however such discussion is not related to the posted question. Thanks.

I believe you have misread my question (or I was careless in writing it). I have added another paragraph to provide another summary.
