Been planning my h2o cooling loop and finally getting it together, and need some advice, then I'm offered a "chiller"?

Hello water cooling guru's I am a new custom loop builder, although I have customized a couple few clc's before. I was offered to buy a "chiller" from one of my local suppliers and after carefully planning my hardware and setup, am not sure what it does, and if there are benefits to adding it to the loop. Appearance-wise it's relatively small, looking more like a weird tiny rad/cooler about the size of a thor's hammer. From what he said, it draws alot of power, but gets the water temps far below ambient air temps. I am not sure if water flows through it or if it mounts to the cpu/gpu directly but I believe it does have places for fittings. If any of y'all know what these are, and whether or not it'd be beneficial to my loop, please give me a shout out. I will list the planned loop hardware/configuration here. Thank you, oldcompgeek.

Xigmatek Elysium case
Asrock Fatality Z77 Professional mobo
Intel I5 3570K CPU
4X2GB DOMINATOR 1866 (Converting to 2400 or as high of dom. that I can run after getting the bugs worked out)
Twin H.I.S. HD 7850 2gb cards in C/F
Hauppage TV tuner
Intel 60 gb ssd (maple crest) for caching
Corsair GS600 power5 supply
Swiftech quiet power dual 140mm rad
Black Ice triple 120mm rad
swiftech 82 gpu blocks
enzotech cpu block (sapphire for now)
1/2 x 3/8 tubing with enzotech compression fittings
Swiftech Maelstrom res with internally mounted mcp350 bmaverick pump
Primochill non conductive red fluid
Xigmatek 120mm fans for triple rad, and prolimatech 140mm fans for swiftech rad
Zalman 6 channel fan controller
Aquacomputer poweradjust usb 2 w/black faceplate
(an Aquacomputer aquero is planned when funding allows it)

The black Ice rad is going vertically behind the hard drive cages with fans pulling, and the swiftech is going up top, although this may be reversed depending on what things look like and performance wise. I also have some universal vrm blocks ordered(6) to use on the vrm's, memory on the gpu's and possibly a bridge or two but this may change. Everything including memory and hard drives will eventually have h2o blocks on them, whichg is why I have the 2 rad's already going in it. Thanks again!

Is the chiller a TEC? Those use a plate with one hot and one cold side when electricity passes through it.

Yes. I'm pretty sure, it does. It apperas after doing some research that he put some type of heatsink/heatplate on it which is why it looks the way it does. I looked at the images for chillers online but saw nothing exactly like it, but similar things. I have, after my research, bought a 92 watt pelter off amazon and will attempt to build my own unit using an extra Antec Kuhler 920 unit that I have laying around from another broken down build. I plan to mount the 920 in the normal exhaust fan area while attachiung it to the "hot" side of the pelter. Then, if it works, I will buy a used cpu or gpu copper block, attach it to the cold side, and run my h2o loop through it to pass the cold into my loop. In theory, it should take the heat away pretty efficiently while not adding any heat to inside the case, and drop the h2o temp in my loop substantially. LOL All this rides on my (in)ability to find somewhere to put the McGyvered unit, although I have somewhere to mount it in;My extra xigmatek hard drive cage will be the right dimensions to fit the 920 block/pump and the pelter as well as the cold side block. I considered using a heat exchanger style block for the cold side but I wanted somethiong with low restriction that is designed to kinetically transfer temps effeciently-like a cpu or gpu block. Whaddya think?
