for me $100-$200 for a rad is plenty worth it. I'd actually like to get the Feser Monsta rad if they ever come out... looks like an absolute beast!
Yeah, in your case, go for a triple Feser. Do not get the Monsta, because it is going to be impossible to handle. You'd need 6 high RPM fans in push/pull, and you would absolutely have to be running two pumps considering how many blocks you have.

Go for the PA140.3 if you really want some overkill powers.

ya, its just as easy to find as the Feser. There is literally zero stock of good triple rads...

Keep in mind that my loop is not all that restrictive. My 3 GPU blocks are in parallel, so they offer the same restriction as 1/3 of a block. So really, its less restrictive than most loops that have a single gpu block. I'm running a fusion V2 on the CPU and the swiftec universal NB block, both of which are pretty good-flowing. For a pump I'm using the MPC655, which is fairly powerful. I run it almost at its lowest setting, I have experimented with running it on full blast and the load temps do not change by a single degree.

So if anyone has a link or a purchasing channel for either the Feser or Thermochill triple rads, please post it up.

FYI we are not getting out of water cooling, but inventory has been tighter lately...

Tough economic times and all that...

thanks for setting that straight Linus. NCIX is basically the only Canadian source of this stuff!

I would hate it, if ncix stop selling water cooling. I could imagine used would be the only thing available.

Lucky you. In the past three months, I've placed orders with Sidewinder, Performance PC's, Jab-tech, and FrozenCPU. All I need is an order from Petra's, and I'll have completed the entirely unholy pentagram.

I think the hard part is stocking the short life cycle products, like full coverage blocks for specific gpus, etc. Plus us modders like to switch brands all the time... what was hot at the end of last year is an embarrassment to own this year. The stock goes bad quickly and the market is very niche. All you need is one good store with everything in stock like NCIX, to supply the whole country.

Maybe if there was some form of pre-order program. A few times per year they could hold a pre-order period, and everyone pays deposits (or full price) on the stuff they want. That way they can order the right quantity of the right parts, and reduce the amount of stale inventory. It would also help establish which products are in high demand and which are not so much.

So, we'd have to sacrifice a bit of selection, maybe we'd have to choose 1 radiator company for everyone (last year would have been TC, this year Feser, etc), and stop carrying all the low quality stuff.

Heh, if NCIX stopped selling WCing products, I'd cancel my PP membership that very day. I'm sure I'm not alone on that.

The thing about most parts is that you have to keep your eyes open. I'm constantly checking to see what is running low, what is being cleared out, so that I can have a chance to grab some before it's gone. The stuff I want to buy is generally there, but just not in as large a variety as I had come to expect from NCIX. I like searching for a product and finding multiple brands and models of it, allows me to be very specific with my purchases. The one major thing I wanted for my project that is not available now is the PA160 radiator, so I had to use another rad.
