    These I like. Looks like I am getting some new fittings. Hopefully Newegg will get these also, thay a couple dollars less there for the silver versions compared to PPCS.

    I don't really like the look of the reactor symbol... but hopefully this causes BitsPower to realize they don't have a quality monopoly anymore.
    Signatures make my posts look huge... but I'm not humble enough to completely remove my signature, so I kept this note explaining it.

    I'd stop complaining because you can get Themochil radiators and EK blocks for less than a pack of gum. Us in the US pay out the butt.

    Come on folks, wait till you try buying watercooling parts in Asia. We have Bitspower and HWLabs literally in our backyards yet most of us have to order from US at ridiculous shipping charges.

    Well, there's an online store selling watercooling stuff in Singapore as well. But the selection is nothing close to PPCS and SWC. Do you have a link for me to check out.

    Lol, that's why I order EK products from the States while EK's home country is around the corner. You in the US have in general way cheaper computer equipment than us over here. Eg. 800D costs 300$ for you. For me over here it is about 450$ give or take... Pitty there isn't any affordable shipping method

    As per fittings, look nice. I like orange color o-rings but still I see 7$ per piece. Barbs aren't cheap either.

    These fittings look nice, I also think the logo on them is nicer than BP's.

    Erklat: many times seemingly lower prices of state-side shops are because of non included WAT in them compared to european shops. Often you have to pay that difference at customs when recieving orders from US, unlike when ordering from EU countries. Shipping prices also chip away price difference. So i cannot fully agree that in 100% all of cases end/total prices @US shops will be lower.

    There's so much fail in this comment that I don't know why I bother.

    Sidewinders 76 usd

    Indomo 637 sek

    637 sek = 83 usd

    EK's shop 74.95 euros
    75 euros = 94 usd


    Try using google before you make erroneous statements. Computer pricing is completely based towards US consumerism where even for EU based products we pay more than our stateside friends. So no, I don't think we pay less for much.
    They say the definition of madness is doing the same thing and expecting a different result.

    Since we are not being part of the EU, I pay custom fees either way, not custom fees to be exact
    since we do not have fees on computer equipment, but rather VAT on the cost of item and shipping.
    So, as the previous poster from Sweden took time and converted, custom fees are therefore even worse when you buy in the EU in comparison with those from the States.
    The easiest way is to have your stateside address registered with someone and combine multiple items at the cost of single package shipping.
    So for me, it is by far better to stick with newegg and PFPCs

    But you're right, my statement was partially correct because I didn't remember than citizens of the EU countries are not obligated to pay custom fees
    amongst them.

    Agreed. I'd like them all black without the decal, but maybe some nail polish remover would do the trick?
