Default EK Waterblocks in Canada?

I'm looking for a couple of specific EK waterblocks, and it seems that NCIX isn't carrying them. Does anyone else in Canada carry EK? I'd rather not cross border ship if I don't have to.

Thanks in advance.

You could email Linus and ask him if NCIX can/is going to get stock. You could also post a product request on NCIX.

i ran into a similar problem when looking for ek blocks for my 3850 as ncix would not order them in for me. Not enough need i guess. But this may work for you it did for me. I ordered 2 FC 3870 blocks as the ram/gpu holes lined up just not the vrm and then for the vrm i got some swiftech 8800 geneic mosfet heat sinks and some artic silver themal adhesve. Worked great and looks better IMHO.
