Looks more or less right to me. The expansion of water will be slightly different since the rate of expansion varies with the absolute temperature, but those numbers are close enough for our purposes.

Not sure I agree with your conclusion though. Higher overall temperatures will only increase the risk of warping. If the boiling point was lower, the overall temperature will not exceed the boiling point until the coolant is converted to a gas.
