I you want to stand out from the P150/180 crowd, and/or want to accommodate EATX, overclock.co.uk (not to be confused with Overclockers UK) have the Antec Titan, minus PSU, for a bargain £44. 8)

Useful source of handy bits and pieces, such as molex terminals, cable management stuff, grommets, ducting etc. There isn't much in the "Silent PC" section, unfortunately ;)

Might be worth cleaning up the first couple of posts, sadly quite a few companies listed have gone out of business. :/

The Seasonic S12s are on offer again. The 430w version is just under £36 - cheaper than the 380w - beat that! :-O

B.T.W. this is an 'All Week' offer, with the 330W's going for less than £30 incl. VAT :shock:


I paid a damn site more than that for mine from them... :cry:


Might just get one for... 'stock'. :D



Thanks for the heads-up Nat 8)

That is exactly what I thought. ;)

Scan made a mistake on my last order and gave me free delivery on my next, so I made the most of the opportunity... :lol:

http://www.specialtech.co.uk - Huge stock of Alphacool products, far excels thecoolingshop's. The customer service I've received has also been excellent. If you can't get what you need from them use alphacool.de directly which ships to Britain. (Due to my poor personal experience with them, I'd strongly recommend you steer clear of the thecoolingshop).

Follow up to this thread - I ordered 5 of the orange Yate Loon D12SL-12s from www.jab-tech.com last thursday and they arrived this morning. Using the cheapest postage option (global priority) the whole lot including postage came to £18.05 when I used PayPal to pay for it - I think it would have been slightly less if I'd paid using a credit card as the PayPal exchange rate isn't accurate.

Packaging was okay but not exceptional - large box with bubblewrap on the bottom as cushioning and loads of foam shapes, but nothing to stop the fans moving around or contacting each other within the box. There was no damage though and they all work fine (understatement of the year!) Delivered by postie too so no hassle with collection. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone in the UK - ordering 5 fans seemed to be the best trade-off for cost/postage. Placing 6 in my basket removed the cheapest postage option, so 5 seems to offer the best value - ordering 3 is still only £12(!). If you were ordering loads then it might work out cheaper still, but then you'd risk a customs charge

Hi Pete,

Hmm.. strange that it doesnt work for you.. watercoolinguk.co.uk is simply just a mirror site of our main one www.componentsuk.co.uk/catalog/

Also thanks yourself for the heads up, i'll send Mike a PM about Vendor status ;)

Please let me know if the compuk link doesnt work for you.. I've just changed the whole site so it's snowing, this could be a problem in some browsers but then again it could also be the site mirror.

Just my luck 8)

Hi,


I use this:

in the PaQ case which we just started selling.


We hadn't thought of selling the foam on it's own, but I'm sure we could.

I was trying to find a shop who sells the Thermalright XP-120 CPU heatsink in the U.K. (or who will ship to the U.K). I can only find one shop on Froogle that sells it, but the website is down for maintenance. If XP-120s are still sold, could anyone help me find a site please? Thank you :)

Try PC-Cooling.de. It's not particularly cheap (£27.29 at todays prices), but it's in stock and shipping is often cheaper than from UK stores. AS5 and Ceramique are also considerably cheaper than in the UK, they also stock all the adapter brackets etc for Thermalright.
I've had several good experiences from this store, no negatives (yet).
The best thing is the free bag of german Haribo mix that they throw in with every order (no idea why, but hey- free Haribo :D ). Two things though- the cost for purchasing in a different currency is usually £1.50 (I'm with HBOS, ymmv); and it's a good idea to keep Babelfish open to double-check what you're agreeing to, T&Cs, etc.
Hope this helps.
And You're Ugly!
