Default Look what the mailman brought me!

Zoals de titel reeds zei, mijn verrassing deze morgen:
Mijn eigenste Cascade waterblok uit AustraliŽ.
Werk voor dit weekend in 't vooruitzicht...

Een paar fotookes van mijn exemplaar:






De koperzijde is gelapt met grid 600 (volgens Cathar ideaal voor gebruik met thermal pastes zoals Artic Silver 3).
In werkelijkheid is het koper heel glad, de flash van mijn digicam overdrijft de onregelmatigheden veroorzaakt door het schuurpapier.

Klaat iets weten over de resultaten t.o.v. mijn Maze3...

Sorry...

Cathar had "Copper CPU cooling device" en "GIFT" op het pakje geschreven, dus geen taksen of douaneproblemen...

International bank costs are killing you, this is why I use paypal as most as I can (fixed fee in % of the total amount).

AMD Socket A Cascade CPU Waterblock: $128.00 AUD
Insurance up to $200 ($7.00 + $2.00): $ 9.00 AUD
Shipping up to 500gr ($8.00 + $6.00): $ 14.00 AUD
---------------------------------------------------
Subtotal: $151.00 AUD
Paypal surcharge 3%: $ 4.53 AUD
---------------------------------------------------
Total: $155.53 AUD

Equals 88.67 Euro...

hehe , any disadvantages on having paypal? VISA-based i guess?
don't have VISA tbh

about the blok, i love the mounting, the bolts are with a "steady" head instead of a bad mounting mechanism as the maze3 wich always looses after a while.

They're not officially a bank, yet they act like one. If paypal ever goes belly-up, all your paypal money is gone.

This used to be a problem, but transferring paypal money to your normal Belgian bankaccount is possible since 2003. Just don't leave anything on your paypal account and it's pretty safe.

And yes, you'll need visa or similar.
