This post is meant to serve as a guide to pick up supplies in the great Seoul area. This information is subject to sudden change.
I'll do my best to keep this mini-thread up to date as possible.


This week is a company Holiday for LG Display as well as Monday being Children's day and Tuesday being Buddha's birthday here in the ROK. (Republic of Korea)
Naturally since I've got a new build on the way and some free time I went shopping for some supplies locally.

My first stop brought me to the PC market diagonally across from Yongsan Stn.
This is geeks paradise and it's filled with just about all matter of things computer oriented. Just a few weeks ago a 3D printing shop opened here as well.
I happened to stop by Evercool to check our their heatsinks, and sure enough I was able to find some Arctic Sliver 5 thermal paste along with a few other varieties that were not quite as well known.
This store carries Arctic MX 3 and MX4, and ShinEtsu MassCool G751 ..etc

I am familiar with Arctic silver 5 so I purchased some instead.

Looking around this shop I also noticed that they were also selling mico-copper
ramchip coolers which have a 3M Thermal interface tape stuck to the back.

These should work well very well to cool the current regulators on many of our drivers. I got a bunch of those too.
If anyone wants one or two of these let me know.

I know that store in your second picture, I bought some cheap thermal paste there. :)

I'll be back up and building after I finish my exams.

Oh, and I also found a source for pro level battery chargers like the iCharger at the iPark mall. There are 2 stores now selling a variety of them.

The ones at the mall are all brand with their original certification/warranties.

I got one (to test out) on Thursday from the Buythegun (detonator) store at the electronics land and promptly returned it as it was a fake iMax charger. :mad:
The owner is going to return it to the supplier. He immediately gave my money back, and apologized profusely!!

Wow, I wondering how much markup they charge for the iChargers.

I recommend that you skip the most basic of hobby chargers (Accucel-6, iMax B6) and move straight to an entry level iCharger, like the 106B+. Well worth the extra money for precision, output, heat dissipation, and PC connectivity. :)

Yes, actually was at back at the store today, at tamiya
and they had a bunch of iMax b606ac pro for about 85,000w.
This charger also plots charge and discharge via rs232 via the temp port.
It is only an 80W charger as apposed to 250W for the icharger 106b

Lol, no... Rather frustrating shopping locally..
Tablets are at least double what they are in the US.
Even korean made ones are x2 the price, same goes for TVs.

The heat sinks are definitely adaptable
as a driver ic cooler. I got lots of spares.
You may need to cut one down to size it.
How many you want?
