Yeah DC has pretty well all that NCIX has it's just a hell of a lot harder to find on the site...... :)

I don't think they have the new WC "Starter" kits though.

As far as motorcycle rads go..... they're normally pretty big for this application aren't they? Smaller autos have one that's fairly close to a 240 IIRC, but since you can pick up a 240 for $40 why bother?

Car radiators are smaller than motorcycles, in general? Who would have thought?!?!. But for those superbikes i bet they have nice and small rads, heck now i'm starting to wonder what the rads on those pocketbikes look like,

Dang they are a BC store :( I remember 4 years ago searching up comp stores for my previous stores and found some really mod-oriented ones in Toronto but can't find them anymore. Are there no water-cooling stores in Toronto? I would really rather not have to pay for shipping and wait like 2 weeks for my rad to come..

Because a heater core generally has more fin area, and quite a bit thicker. Although you do generally need 38mm wide fans to get enough air pressure to push/pull through them.

If you find any I'd like to know too. Seems they have all closed down...

Bigfoot Computers was the one I knew of, but they've gone.
