Question Thermaflo Quotes

Hello everyone,

Yes, this is another heatsink post!

I had just recieved a quote from thermaflo stating:

E3087U X 48.00" - 543.22 each
E3096U X 48.00" - 497.18
E1363U X 48.00" - 691.33

Now, how can the above prices differ from the prices by more than 2 times?


Heatsink Sourcing (split from AXB thread)

As I understand, they are both 4 foot sections. Anodizing and cuts not included.




Anyhow, I am planning to build 2 Aleph 30s.

Judging from previous posts, it appears that many people would be interested in purchasing some heatsinks. Although I have absolutedly no experience with organizing group buys, I can attempt to just so I can get some heatsinks!!

The Canadian heatsink groupbuy thread seems to be indefinitely on hold, anyone interested in a new group buy for 2005?


Cheers,

Brandon

Hi Brandon,

The heat sinks from R-Theta are an excellent deal even in small quantities. I just ordered 4 pieces of their beefy 65340 extrusion, cut to 12 inches and black anodized. $65.71 CAD each plus a $50.00 setup fee. There is a price break if more then 10 pieces are ordered. Prices must be due to Ontario's cheap electricity, gotta love that hydro!www.r-theta.com

I am also finding Hammond transformers to be a quite a good deal, I just recieved my toroids, they're spec'd at 16.5 pounds but weigh a full 20! How's that for Canadian modesty! http://www.hammondmfg.com/

Yes Mr. Pass, I think I've slowly turned into a heatsink fanatic when I built ZEN

Thank you for your advice Gaucho. I have emailed R-theta several days ago and waiting for their reply. But I didn't expect them to be that cheap!

I do have another question.

I am not experienced with obtaining quotes from heatsink manufacturers (or almost any manufacturer for that matter). Should I provide more information in addition to what I want to buy? Does anyone know the business aspect/process of this?

Thanks,

Brandon

What extrusion, length and finish did you ask R-Theta for a quote on? I would be curious to see some more of their pricing. Please let us know what kind of price you get from them. Thanks.

You may want to ask how long it will take the manufacturer to complete your order. After I had order comfirmation R-Theta told me my sinks would ship out in about 3 weeks. You may also want to let the manufactures know if your not buying through a bussiness, that way when you place your order they're not wasting time trying to get a hold of you for PO's that don't exist or for shipping accounts you don't have.

Thumbs up Thermaflo Quotes

Thermaflo is where I got my HS for my Zv4...I forgot the part number but had a positive experience with them. They cut it to my size too without additional charges.

Hmmm, maybe my quote requests are getting eaten by their spam filter !? I guess I'll give them a call tomorrow.

You can have both anodizing and cutting done cheaper pretty much anywhere else.

In particular anodizing is cheap, for 45 USD you can have 8 heat sinks anodized.
