That's very disappointing dude .. I really don't think that way.
You're right Unicr0nhunter, there is no another WC shop in my country besides PCmodd.
The trick is to "think outside the box" ... there is a whole industry/economy/distribution outthere... its not because you are "plumbing" on your PC you have to go through PC W/C specialist shops....
Modding your PC , need to some Acryl/Perpex/Plexi for a window.? You *can* order from AllYourPcModdingNeeds.com in Croatia.... or you can go to plexiglass.com and order some "samples" from their local distributor. Or you can stroll to your local DIY and buy a sheet for less as the shipping from the above.
Need some fittings/elbows...? You *can* order from AllYourPcWaterCoolingNeeds.com in Timbuktu.... or you can go to localplumbingsupplies.com and order some. Or you can stroll to your local DIY and buy a handfull of them for the shipping price. Sure they wont look as good as Bitspower... but they'll work just as well.
The hose used in PC W/C nowadays found its way from a rather ordinairy origin like garden/fuel hose, but also from Medical & Food grade hoses - like Tygon. Some of this stuff is used worldwide.. i can't think of a country where when you order a beer that they fill you glass by spooning it from an open vat (although Guinness comes close
So, who makes Tygon? Check out the their website... click the "where to buy" link on their website.
This might point you to a distributor in your country.. you are halfway there, now it requires some phone haggling skills to get them to send you some samples or point you to a local distributor/vendor/buyer.
You'ld be amazed about how much stuff you can get basically for free doing this
Of course, it is much easier to click on the BUY button and enter your creditcard number.... but it kind of takes the fun out of it.
If you want easy & convenient, then you might just as well buy a prebuild system from pugetsystems http://www.pugetsystems.com/
There is much fun & learning & savings to be found in figuring where stuff came from , how it was re-purposed and how to repurpose it again yourself. (growing up poor has kinda engrained that out-of-box thinking in me i guess)
Oh, and at a pitch... if you can live with the higher maintenance and the fugly looks- ... aquarium hoses and (reinforced) garden hose works just as well....
