For info on the waterjacket, go to the Waterjacket page. 

The Peltiers came from Oatley Electronics. a rocking electronics mail order place in NSW, Australia.  I *highly* recommend getting your Peltiers here if you live in Aus, they are by far the cheapest, and they have lots of other cool shit too( we also got a 640x480LCD for 17bucks, and a shitload of old pagers for a buck each!). 

The radiator coolant is standard car radiator coolant (the fluro green kind) with anti-freeze.  We bought this from Hardware House. 

The sealant is your average silcon sealant (I'm sure any kind will do), and also bought from Hardware House.  The sealant is rated to stay flexible from -50C to 150C which is in the range we're looking for, and as well was guaranteed to bond to "aluminium and copper" which is perfect for the water jacket/heat sink combination we're planning. 

The pump was purchased at Statue Innovations, a fountain specialty shop.  The pump is rated at 400 litres/hour and is capable of 850mm of lift. It's rated at a couple of watts, so you'd have no trouble running one off your PC PSU, but this particular model runs off mains anyway.
