Where do you get your modding gear?

So not sure if I'm posting this in the right spot or not.

I buy almost all my hardware at NCIX but they have a very small selection of anything mod wise.
Hopefully before summer, I am going to try to build a case from scratch. I have a kind of idea in my head that I think would be neat so I'm going to try it out. Haven't done much modding but I've done a lot of other kinds of work with the same kind of tools.
I don't have a computer to put in this imaginary case yet, but maybe I'll swap out my Antec 900....maybe.

So the question where do you guys buy your fans, lights, rads, water cooling hose/fittings/liquid/pumps, sleeving and all the other cool stuff I see in peoples rigs!

Online stores are the only things I'm really interested in.
Thanks in advance!

I believe NCIX has all of those things except the sleeving and the lights. Those can be found on ebay if you don't mind using it.

Possibly other places, but i'm not 100% sure. I'm certain someone will know :thumb:

I always use Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come.

It is a USA storefront, which means a bit of a longer wait, but its a great site with almost anything you can think of! :thumb:

Just placed a order tonight, got my black rivets...almost ready:thumb:

Got a few orders from Gary @ Sidewinder Computers - Supplier of High Quality PC Modding and Cooling parts but his selection isnt as good still most of the time he is a few dollars cheaper than PerPC.

speaking of mods, mine are usually a different kind than the ones you are talking about, but we use the same hardware sometimes. i am wondering where you can get good size quantities of 4 pin Molex connectors? more specifically, the pins...both female and male. the housings would be nice as well. any help is appreciated.

I have gotten them form both Gary at Sidewinder and at PerPC, because PerPC was open in a tab you get the PerPC link. :thumb:

Plus PerPC has a bigger selection, 12v, Sata, molex, 24 pin, 3 pin, ect.

Molex Pins : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

Yeah even though Performance-PCs rapes you on shipping, they have the widest selection of modding related stuff and it's generally where I get mine from.

However I did recently get some sleeving and heatshrink from Sidewinder since I was ordering other things there. His shipping was way less than P-PCs and I got a rather sizeable box. My P-PCs order which cost more for shipping came in a dinky bubble envelope as seen below:
