Such is the joy of being a student - it gets better when you get into industry and end up junking most of what you learned at degree

Without knowing the specifications of the radiator, I couldn't even begin to guess.

The radiator will (usually) determine the final temperature of the system - it's rate limiting. One would still have to calculate the contribution of every part to get an accurate figure though. A back of the envelope calculation can be done if the heat load (did I see 1.3kW?), water flowrate (it's on the pump) and fluid capacity of the TEC-block are known.

It is by coffee alone I set my mind in motion...
