    Yeah i know. They are good rads but i would never pay that much eh. I use to order a lot from ppcs after ncix went bankrupt because they got hacked and lots of personal info were lost. I didn't know about Daz at that time so everything was from either ppcs or corsair... Corsair made me mad to many time so no more shopping from them and like you said, shipping cost got ridiculous to order from the US. Then discovered Dazmode like a lil over a year from now and not buying from anywhere else now.

    It sure would be a nice addition to the shop if customers could get those. Along with a couple other parts like Barrow but Daz doesn't like cheap chinese product haha. And i think it's understandable. Maybe one day we will see those radiators here but until then, i'm afraid it's either pay the big price or go for a replacement.

I haven't ordered from ppcs since that mess started up and with what that stupid Trump guy is doing to the import/export with us right now, i bet things have gotten worse. Ordering from ppcs used to be very cheap even with shipping cost. Would those fees have increased since?
    Shipping costs were reasonable (but again in US funds), and the duty / gst was about an extra $30. In the end is was a $150 ish US dollar value order that landed me at around $260 Cdn delivered. Exchange / Shipping / Duty / Tax, it all adds up pretty quick.

    And yeah with everything going on in the US right now, I would have much rather spend that money with Daz. But it was just a couple specific items that Daz didn't sell I got from them. The HW Labs 280GTS and a Monsoon Series Two D5 Bay res. Everything else I bought from Daz.

    Anything bay related is going the way of the dinosaur, so I'm not advocating for Daz to start picking those up. But the Hardware Labs Rads are the best ones out there.

    If you count a CC exchange rate dropping from 1.4 to 1.37 good.

    Credit cards and paypal tack additional percentage onto the exchange rate as a fee for processing the exchange. Our Cnd currency isn't exactly steller right now either.

    I'll second this. Ended up buying my rad out of PPCS because I was pretty set on the 280GTS. Exchange / Shipping / Duty was a kick in the nuts.

    Suggestion: Hardware Labs Radiators

    Hardware labs are only doing B2B. So far there isnt an official retailer in Canada. Buying one from amazon.ca cost 230% more than from amazon.com or PPCS in U.S.
    performance and craftsmanship wise, they are many enthusiast’s favorite.
    please consider it
