Default Tec water chiller using Apogee gt's

I gotta an 80 watt pelt and want to sandwich it in between two Apogee gt waterblocks
and incorporate the cold side into my cpu loop.

Already have a spare power supply, pump and rad for the hot side

With some insulation around the cold block,and a proper mount, kryotesc calculator says i'll be getting temps around -25 on the cold side.

So my question is how do you think the delrin, acetal top and fittings that are used in the gt, hold up against sub zero temps?
Is there another block I might consider that would be better suited?

Every attempt I've read of making a pelt chiller resulted in less than desirable results. I'm not trying to take the wind out of your sales but just wanted to let you know what you're up against.

There's a new member on board named NoL that seems to really know his stuff, maybe you should PM him. Either way report back with your findings. There's something to be learned in any experiment.
