Modding Supply's in South Africa

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been wanting to start modding my case for ages. Unfortunately between the cost of decent tools and the fact that modding supply's are hard to come by in South Africa (not to mention how much hardware costs) I've never gotten around to it. Sure I can order stuff from Mnpctech or FrozenPC but the shipping is murder (a $2.95 thermal adhesive pad costs $15 to ship eek.gif).

Finally after much Googling I found a local site (sorta) that sells pretty much everything you need for modding. Thermal tape, thermal paste, heatshrinking, heat sinks, plexi, modders mesh (well perforated metal sheets at least), they even sell cutting disks for rotary tools. The best is that they have stuff to suit just about every budget and shipping is free.

The site is RS-Online and I'm definitely going to be ordering some stuff from them......... as soon as I sort my debt out.

Not sure if other South Africans on here have used/found this site yet so I thought I'd just let folks know.

Happy Modding/Overclocking

Thanks for the offer levontraut but the cost of shipping from the USA to the UK and then posting to South Africa will be even higher. I recently priced a pair of Dr Marten's in the UK. The boots cost £58.99 and the postage (regular Royal Mail) was about £59. Have quiet a few friends in the USA and friends and family in the UK so if that was an option I would have done it years ago.

Yeah but the cheapest option would actually to order from RSOnline, the site I mention in my 1st post. They based in South Africa and shipping is FREE. Can't get much cheaper for shipping than that.
