I messaged them (CRYORIG) yesterday, and this is what I got:
"Hey, I'm currently living in Canada and it is impossible to find your products over here. I really wanted to use the h7 cooler for my next build and I'm having a hard time doing so. Any updates on this? Thanks!"
Thank you for contacting us and for your interest in our product.
We are aware of the issue and still trying to have a sales channel in Canada. If everything goes smoothly, our products will be available on Newegg.ca or Amazon before this Summer ends! But if you can't wait to have a H7, we could arrange a drop shipment via EMS and PayPal for you exclusively. The total costs of the H7 would be the international shipping cost (around 32 USD, at cost) + H7 retail price (34.5 USD) = $66.5 USD and the shipment will take 4-5 days depending on your location. If you're still interested in this, then we'd need your Paypal email account to proceed in sending the payment request. Thanks! "
Hey, thanks for the great guide @manirelli, this is the second pc I will be building based on your guides (the first one was back in 2014)
This time around though I'll be going for an i7-6700k since I do some programming and sometimes I need the extra threads.
Do you have any suggestions for thermal paste? I have never had to apply it before as I've always used the cooler that ships with the processor, but this i7 doesn't come with one. Needless to say I am a bit nervous about it!
Also, in Canada it is literally impossible to find any CRYORIG coolers (the company itself has stated it is trying to something about it), so I'll be using a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO.
Once again, thanks a lot!
ps.: this is my current list http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/YMRK3F
It doesn't show any compatibility issues. I was just afraid that a more compact board could cause trouble with cooling.
I was wondering...
Would using a Gigabyte GA-Z97M-D3H be possible? (note the M: Micro ATX).
It's the only one available locally here. Is it just the overall size that changes? (I don't intend to overclock the cpu)
