Default where to buy Noctua NF-P12 or scythe "slip stream" in toronto?

hey all, im looking to buy 1 Noctua NF-P12 cause the reviews i've been reading of em are incredible, but i can only find them for sale on NCIX and Directcanada in vancouver, do you guys know of any stores that sell em in Toronto? I would also consider the scythe slip stream, but also can't find those in toronto. I really dont wanna pay the shipping simply for case fan.:p


Cheers and thanks in advance.

The Noctua's are a bit of a boutique fan, really. Excellent performance/noise, but it's not the kind of thing that really shines on the shelf, alongside the huge assortment of BS ratings manufacturers put of their products. Even Canada Computers, with their selection of stores through Ontario, don't have them listed.

It is more of a supply / demand issue with them. In many cases they have great products but don't produce nearly enough to meet demand. If you really want one, you could always wait for another of our NCIX-sponsored sales and I am sure you would see a very good price.
