Silver coil/other WC parts in Vancouver
 
Does anyone know of a place in Vancouver that stocks watercooling parts? NCIX's selection/stock isn't very good. Looking for silver coil right now specifically and would rather not pay shipping for something that's like 5 bucks. Or if I have no choice, where's the cheapest I can get it? Daz?

Honestly paying shipping for a small silver coil wouldn't be worth it.

There has got to be a local store that has something 99.99% pure silver that you can put in your res. I've heard of people getting small pure silver bars from jewels and sitting them in their res. (1/2oz being $15, if smaller sizes are available would be nice)

Although a if you have a rez you can open up, a bar probably won't rattle.

Yeah I know there's gotta be somewhere... Lots of vancouver HWC members here so I'm hoping someone knows a place.

I'm in the suburbs, but I bought my silver wire from Twisted Jewels in the US about a year ago. Shipping was $1.90 and back then it was $5.86 for a 12" 16 gauge piece of .999%.

Same thing now would cost just a bit over 10 bucks total:

$7.60 .999 Fine Silver 16 Gauge Round Dead Soft Wire

+ $2.99 shipping.

Made a nice solid coil, not sure on the stuff daz has, seems to be a really fine gauge like 24 or so.

Most of the local jewelry stores only had sterling or much more expensive offerings. I was told a craft store might have been a better bet, but at that point I considered 8 bucks for a decently thick DIY coil to be worth it.

If you wanted to go in with some other people you get free shipping over $20. Good luck.

That's what I bought. Not sure if it's really .999 Pure though. I bought 3 feet of 16 gauge. Free shipping is nice.
