Humidity Beads

I'm purchasing 65% Humidity Beads to help regulate (lower) the RH in my humidor (wine cooler)

Right now, I'm measuring 65 deg. and 76%RH. I am not providing any humidity to the unit. the RH level is basically constant at that temperature.

At that temperature (65/66), what should I be looking to get my RH level down to?

Will the beads actually help doing this?

    I use the 65% Conservagel beads and they hold my humi at a steady 67% which, for me, is perfect.

    65-70 as Kuzi mentioned.

    Yeah, they will help bring your RH down. They're a two way humidity system, which means they try to bring the rh up when it's low, and down when it's high. I would just put the beads in there without charging them and let them absorb all that extra humidity.
