Default questions regarding watercooling

DO YOU SUCK OR BLOW!?! your radiator that is ;) Is it better for the fans to suck the air through the radiator or force it through? Also, where can i get a triple radiator from for ~ $50? NCIX has the swiftech one, but I live in Ontario and ncix is all the way in BC. Tigerdirect doesnt sell any triple radiators.

Thanks in advance.

Some ppls says that it's better to have the fan sucking air through the Rad... But really, there isn't any difference. You won't get 1c of a difference having your fans pushing through the rad...

And get that Swiftech MCR320 from NCIX.com... 47$ is a damn good price and it doesn't matter if your far from BC. I order from Palm Bay, Florida (Performance PCs) all the time... And i'm in Montreal.

My last two orders from PerformancePCs to Toronto, ON have been hit with duty at the boarder. Pisses me off when it arrives at my door and I need to pay nearly the same amount as the items.

NCIX is usually really fast with shipping, so just order from them.

Of course... But if you choose USPS, you don't pay handling\packing charges. Only import fees. But Performance PCs has everything one could ever want, is most of the time in stock and has great prices. Not like Petra's Tech Shop.

But i agree. Go with NCIX.com and get the MCR320 from them.

With USPS I got hit with handling and tax.

With UPS I got hit with duty, tax and handling I believe, which was about $28 and the actual order was only like $35.

From now on I'm going to try my best to stick with stores within Canada...

Good idea. Stick with Canadian store as long as you can. I only use Performance PCs and Jab-Tech when they have stuff i can't find here...

And normally my order are over 200$ USD so import fees aren't that high compared to the price i paid for the order. But still, 1\5 - 1\6 the the order price every time is pissing me off.

stupid everything, its LOW IN STOCK

swiftech is making real small ammounts of these and whatever gets made is for their kits, so NCIX is out of the question. Are there any other stores you can recommend me? Otherwise I'll have to start looking at motorcycle radiators >:(

If you are ready to order from US, Performance PCs is one of the best.

Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

BTW: Motocycle radiators ? Not a good idea...lol
