PC Case Gear - General hardware and has some WC'ing stuff too.
GAMMODS - Almost a one-stop-shop for WC'ing stuff in Australia.
The Kool Room - Another great place for WC'ing gear.

That's about it, there's not much in the way of good WC'ing stores in Australia, sometimes it works out to be less to just order from America.

If you're looking for a source of Distilled Water, which you will need, I discovered yesterday that K-Mart sell it in their car parts section. Pretty cheap too, $5.75 for 4 Litres

As for components, the above websites fr0st posted are awesome. Sometimes Megabuy.com.au has some, but rarely.

Are you in Aus yet? I think I remember you talking about moving here a while back.

If you are, how're you liking it?

Yeah I'm here, forgot that we were talking about it actually! I'm loving it. Getting colder here now towards Winter so that sucks a little.

I shipped my PC by boat on January 13th and I still don't have it yet - it arrived in Sydney last week and I'm just waiting for it to clear customs (no idea how long that'll take, they said up to 10 days) ... So that sucks a little. I miss my putah.

This.

I use Pccasegear probably 90% of the time though, just because their customer service is the best I've ever experienced from any shop. ever. Most of the time they'll package and send your stuff the same day it's ordered at least in my experience anyway.

Haha, I'm the opposite, I love the cold

Hope your computer turns up in tact, how well did you pack it :3

Even though I'm in WA, I still use PCCG for most of my stuff, their customer support is out standing.

Packed it pretty well. Bubble wrapped the hell out of it. It was on a boat, so I doubt it got knocked around anyway ... well, I hope.

Hey.... you know, I just moved over from an Island (any aussies want to make a guess?) in tropics to Sydney for uni and pulled my rig with me!



I suppose I qualify now eh!

It's cold here and I have no idea if there are any retail hardware stores around... not that they open past 5pm anyway.

Purchased twice from thekoolroom. Once before I got here and once while I was here. Their prices are decent (by aussie standards as in AUD price < 2x USD price) and the owner's very friendly and prompt but the shipping for small items is.... hmmm...... make sure you buy a large amount in a single order...
