a while ago a few people did discuss this
amazon is more of a third party site, and when we put amazon on here someone might go buy something from a private seller with no guarantees, it's like ebay, not safe to say they are reliable sites because we can't list every safe amazon store / private seller biggrin.gif

edit: Umart isn't a conventional online store, You place an order online and then go to one of their stores to pick it up and pay for it

That's really all I got. NCIX.ca is good, too (again, parent/brother company of DirectCanada) but that's about it. Newegg.ca and TigerDirect.ca have been both ridiculous in the past with their shipping and inflated prices, so I've never gone back. Could have changed, but I doubt it.

Australia I could understand. You've got that whole gigantic ocean thing to fly stuff across. But I used to live right across the border from the States. Now I live an hour from the border. To get something shipped to the US side was usually free or a low flat rate. To cross the border with that stuff they add like $20-30 on. It's ridiculous. I understand there are probably reasons why, but not any good ones. Want to keep business in Canada? Get a better economy and more realistic prices. Ordering supplements is bad, too. You try and ship 10-15lbs of protein to Canada, you're looking at Australia-sized numbers.

Frozencpu and aquatuning are top notch. They might be alittle higher priced but have never had an issue.

Another reason our shipping is so expensive is that those routes are not just long they are much less frequently travelled than equally long routes such as europe to north america hence shipping companies charge even more

Don't bother. The health care isn't actually free (you're taxed out the wazoo), you constantly live in the (very inferior) shadow of the US, and the weather sucks. We just got out of like a 6-month winter. It snowed in May I think. Definitely late April. We don't even have any real cool history. It's a really nice place up north, but that's not frequented enough to be habitable if you're a techy person.

Honestly, I don't think there is such a thing as a single reliable site to do all your liquid cooling shopping at.

Petras and Sidewinders are my first choices, but they both have very limited selections. It's almost impossible to do a complete build using parts either of them offer.

Performance-PCs offers a huge selection of parts, including harder to find items, but it would be a joke to call them reliable. I've had more issues with them than all other sites combined. They aren't always bad, in fact sometimes they are quite good, but it's entirely luck of the draw with them. They also have some jacked up prices on certain items. Because of this, I try to avoid them when possible.

Frozen CPU is sort of a slightly scaled down version of PPCS with a bit more reliability and generally more consistent pricing across their selection, but their shipping costs are always incredibly exaggerated (18 bucks to ground ship a single thermal pad?! Coulda stuck that in a 40 cent letter envelope!). Their slightly scaled back selection also means you usually can't do an entire build with them, unless you are willing to compromise quality in certain aspects of your build or pay for something you don't really need.

Xoxide is a bit of a joke. I don't mean that offensively or anything, but they're sort of the computers & modding bargain bin of the internet. Tons of silly disorganized junk, with some gems sprinkled throughout. They can be fun, and sometimes they have items you just can't get elsewhere, or that are priced much cheaper than elsewhere, but they just don't have the consistency of selection quality or quantity needed to do a complete anything.

Newegg is a great place to do most of your general computer shopping, but falls flat on it's face the second you want to liquid cool or mod anything.

All those other sites are either too small and specialized to really consider full liquid cooling or computer shops, or I've never even heard of so I can't comment on them.

Zero, if you had a issue, use that format and post to help others. We all have issues, but issues depend

Example
Sidewinders pc sent me a $20 bracket in a letter envelope and wouldn't provide a order confirmation. biggrin.gif They send aluminum in a paper envelope
you call them reliable, i dont

performance pc's has modified my order and with $500-1000 spent, i've never had an issue
you dont call them reliable, i do

frozencpu tried to stiff me on an item accepted in the return policy trying to give me store credit and claiming it's not a refundable/returnable item when it was clearly noted in the policy
you say they are more reliable i dont


you can definitely find all your cooling needs on one site, it just depends the level of cooling system you are building
my goal is to help others by us sharing experiences without ranting biggrin.gif

Well I like the idea of the colder weather, and each country has it's own unique set of problems like in Australia All our cars a 3x the US price and it's almost impossible to find a community anywhere like conventions and lan parties let alone watercoolers, IMO I see canada basically as a colder Australia that's much closer to the US making it much easier to go there if needed and being slightly cheaper to order in stuff from the US which I do regularly (I can't even find a silver bitspower extender anywhere in Australia !! doh.gif)
