  2. PDXLAN 2019 - An Event to Remember

    PDXLAN 2019 - An Event to Remember

    PDXLAN is one of the smallest events that we have attended so far, but with this being said it would have to be one of our favorites. The community that gets together to hold this kind of event is one of a kind. They seem more like a family then a random group of people wanting to get together and game. From start to finish we felt welcomed and appreciated for attending with multiple current and future customers coming to our booth to talk about watercooling. PDXLAN is amazing and if you ever get the chance to attend one I hope that you do.

    Quakecon 2019

    This years Quakecon can be summed up in three words Stressful, Fun and Rewarding. With this being one of the biggest events that we do, and my second one that I have personally planned for Performance-PCs, I decided let’s go big or go home.

  6. How to pick the right tubing and fittings

    How to pick the right tubing and fittings

    One of the most confusing parts of building a custom loop is the fittings and tubing, by far. It can be quite stressful when you first look at all the options you have at PPCs when it comes to fittings and tubing. It is extremely important that you purchase compatible fittings and tubing for your custom loop, but it is much easier than you might think. I hope that this quick guide on how to pick out the correct fittings and tubing for your loop helps relieve some of the stress with your build.

  7. CPU Waterblock Comparison - February 2019

    CPU Waterblock Comparison - February 2019 One of the most common questions I get asked as technical support for a watercooling retailer is, “Which CPU block should I get?”. As simple as this question may be to some of you, the answer isn’t always so straight forward for others. Which is precisely why I wanted to get my hands on as many as CPU blocks as I could and put them to the test! In total, I tested seven (7) blocks from five (5) different brands. I stuck purely to measurable performance metrics, as I really have a hard time quantifying any kind of aesthetic categories. So strap on your goggles and throw on some gloves, because we’re about get down to the technical details of my CPU block performance testing! Read more...

    All About UFO Technologies

    If you haven’t heard of UFO Technologies yet, then you’ll want to keep reading further. If you have heard of them and maybe even purchased one of their products, this blog will give you my take on what I think of the brand.

    To give you a little bit of background, I have been testing UFO Technologies for the better part of four months. I have had the pleasure of trying out their Cryo-Chillz 3D Coolant, Ultra-Chillz Opaque Coolant, Rad Radiance Radiator Cleaner, and Event Horizon System Cleaner. You may not have even seen some of these products as they are not on PPCs shelves quite yet.

    A Quick Look at Dual, Parallel, and Serial Loops

    Most beginner watercoolers have questions regarding loop order, and quite a few people will respond with, “loop order doesn’t matter beyond having the pump below the reservoir.” Which is not wrong, but it really only tells half of the story.  If you’re an enthusiast you are probably interested in how watercooling performs in your system depending on the configuration you use. You may have even explored the differences between dual, parallel and serial loops. This blog should give you a little better understanding of how each configuration can benefit your loop.
