    Hi,

    I am modding an old HP server case and it is a perfect candidate for a 2x 200mm radiator. I would like to use 200mm as I will get a lot more surface area for the case size with less wasted space down the sides compared to a 3 x 140mm.

    Went looking and have found the radiators hard to find and the fans are even harder.

    Any suggestions on an Australian supplier with stock?

    many thanks

    Good buying at the moment mate :thumbup:

    Phobya used to do a 200mm unit but haven't seen one in the wild for ages.

    Strap a pair of SilverStone APs to that sucker and you should be good :thumbup:

    Looks like that radiator is a 180mm, I found a phobya that would be a good fit but not available in Oz.

    Any recommendations for OS suppliers that don't ream with shipping charges?

    The sad bit is that I can find on Amazon but won't ship to Oz.

    Newegg does not seem to have much of a radiator range.

    I think I have tracked one down on ebay, going to cost me a mint in postage but wtf

    Go to the auspost website, they have a US address service (shopmate) which I've used for a US only ebay store. It's about $23 on top of the purchase price to get it back to Australia (and some dicking about as their auto system is pretty much useless) but it gets you round the no down under support.

    around 2010 i used https://www.priceusa.com.au/ to drop ship items from USA only sellers a few times and it worked well for me. it was the best option available when i researched it back then.

    It is 180, that's the closest you'll get locally :thumbup:

    http://www.au.aquatuning.com appear to have a few 200mm options...

    Reasonable postage too.

    Only issue you might have is their $150 min order value...
