My System Specs

Default Thermal PADS in Canada?

Just wanted to know if anyone stocks larger quantities of stuff like EK Thermal Pads for use on memory chips and VRM chips. I have 2 Dual PCB GTX 295's so I'll go through the stuff quickly.

I know Frozen CPU sells large sheets, but I have had no personal experience dealing with them and them shipping here. Can anyone chime in about them?

I know Dazmode stocks some, but the pad sizes they stock are pitifully small for what I need. Does anyone know if Daz will do some sort of bulk deal?

Thanks in advance for any help on the matter.

of course! I can't believe I didn't even think about dropping him a line. Do you know how I can contact him? I've heard he's a pretty reasonable guy.

Thanks!

Let us know how you make out as well. Finding those freaking pads is probably only second in line to finding a full roll of thermal tape at a decent price as one of the "holy grails" of PC maintenance. :)

BTW.... for anybody who has a roll of that tape.... don't leave it laying around for your teenage son to find.... he just might think it's standard double sided tape and use half of it for something completely uncalled for..... ;)

Well unfortunately Daz has little wiggle room on Thermal pads Anyone know how good Frozen CPU is when shipping up here? Their bulk sheets of thermal pads are probably the best bang for $.

Would there be any interest for a forum bulk buy or something?
