Default T-REX Waterblock

Anyone seen the T-Rex? I'm pretty sure it is old news, but it's still tight! It's got a built in peltier, which is cool, but the top of the block looks like it is Acrylic or Lucite. Even though it is ridiculously thick, I would still be worried about it cracking due to the cold temps from the peltier.

Haven't seen that particular one, but Swiftech also makes a TEC block like that....the finish on that block looks PERTY though

Swiftech liquid cooled TEC for AMD K8 processors

and one for GPU's right here:

One for the CPU has a 226w peltier, that's pretty massive, didn't find what the one for the GPU was but I only did a quick glance

Yeah I've known about Swiftech's for a while. The TRex looks hella sexy, but the swiftech looks like it would perform better. A combination of a peltier and lucite top scares me.
