Does anyone know where to get this part in, or shipped to, Canada? The only place I've found it is NCIX, but it's no longer available from their webstore (as in; it's not possible to add it to the cart)

Thanks,
P

I don't know of a single place that has it in stock. Thermalright inventory has been spotty for quite sometime. I just barely managed to grab one last week from NCIX for $50.

Sorry, I'm in Montreal, but thanks.

I'm thinking about giving the Tuniq a chance, it seems to have received really good reviews. Does anyone know anything about the included fan, and its, supposedly, superior 9-blade design? I already have a spare nexus 120 real silent, that I intended to use with the Ultra-120, would it be a better choice, or should I stick to the included one?

I was talking to a few vendors in the Toronto area, the ones I knew who carried Thermalright told me the only Canadian distributor (well in the Toronto area anyway) of Thermalright parts had gone south. A few of the vendors were trying to find American distributors but otherwise Thermalright parts had become a rare commodity in Canada.

can't tell you much about the fan that is included with the tuniq since i'm using a scythe s-flex e, but i'm quite happy with the tuniq perfromance in a low airflow case.. the mounting system really works wonders because you can get really good pressure on the cpu.

What will you be using this cooler for by the way?

Because I have heard that the Noctua heatsink with a 12cm noctua fan can easily handle an intel core 2 duo overclocked to 3.2ghz. And the noctuas are very very quiet.

Tuniq is generally used for higher airflow and for super high overclocks, but as it has been mentioned, it can do well in lower airflow situations.

If you tell us what you will be using the heatsink for, we may be able to get a better idea of what you need.

I have a similar request.

I opted for the Solo for price (over the P182). Anyway, I'm looking at a E6750 cpu but I wasn't going to overclock. Would an aftermarket heatsink still be a good choice? I found a Thermalright 120 in stock. I was going to pair it up with a Scscythe S-Flex fan.

I was going to wait until the 45nm Quads come out but would like to get something for now.
