When in your shopping cart look for "I have a voucher", check it, and enter the code.

Thanks for all the info man, greatly appreciated.



I hear a lot of good things about heatkiller. I've been keeping an eye on them waiting for pictures and details of their 2080Ti blocks. I'm not sure where to buy heatkiller stuff though, there's only one distributor in Aus and their range is very small. Unfortunately this is usually the case in Australia when it comes to high end enthusiast watercooling parts. Local places only seem to sell EKWB, Thermaltake, Phanteks and a few odd bits and pieces from other brands like XSPC.

Regarding aquacomputer blocks, that's another brand that's very difficult to get here but I haven't seen a 2080Ti block from them yet. If there is one and I missed it, I would love to see it if someone has a link.

You can buy Heatkiller at Aquatuning. I certainly know the pain of buying watercooling gear in Aus. You're right you just can't buy much at all here. Keep an eye on the link below site for Aquacomputer GPU blocks. Also, some other very good gear. from them, https://shop.aquacomputer.de/index.php But be advised, check Aquatuning first. They sell alot of their gear too and it works out cheaper in the end.

I can only say it is a German thing, I think. They are very fastidious and they wont accept anything but the best. Good luck with it.

After seeing how they handled it I would not buy an Alphacool product or any product from any of their affiliates. It was deplorable IMHO.
I read about that just recently, which was partly why I was looking for alternatives to Aquatuning. But sadly no-one in Australia sells Alphacool anymore and they appear to have the best 2080Ti waterblock as far as I can tell based on the amount of micro channels.

Alphacool: 35 microchannels
Bitspower: 30 microchannels
EKWB: 29 microchannels
Phanteks: 24 microchannels

Also they are one of the only places that I can get Aquacomputer DP Ultra coolant delivered to Aus.

I sent them an email asking about it but I'm yet to get a response.

I was going to buy the Alphacool waterblock for the 2080Ti as it has the highest microchannel count of any block currently released for the card, but I'm not sure what the deal is since they were counting down the days until they were meant to have stock and now there's just red text saying delivery date exceeded :/ Alphacools own online store says the same thing, but I don't understand whether it means the stock is overdue or I missed the opportunity to order.

Only other site I can find that sells it is ModmyMods but the price including postage is a killer.

As far as I know goods below $1000 are exempt from the GST. My last purchase was ordered 18th July and was here within about 2 weeks. If you are having difficulties I would be patient. I ordered a small parcel from the US recently and it was agonisingly slow getting out of customs and arriving. All it was was 2 right-angled atx adaptors. It's that pea-brained Dutton to blame, I think. I really have had nothing but positive experiences with Aquatuning, I hope it has stayed that way.
