Channelz - Premium Liquid Cooling Water Distribution Plates
Water distribution plates, or manifolds as they are also referred to, have been taking the open loop community by storm for a number of years now. In late 2018 Performance PCs took its first step into the custom distribution plate market by purchasing their first CNC mill. Since then we have expanded our line of manifolds to over 20 different SKUs with some of the highest quality in the industry.
How We Do It
Every great product starts from a great design. We accomplished just that by partnering up with our friends at Singularity Computers. Both PPCs and SC use their decades of water cooling experience to design every custom distro we manufacture, from the ground up. All of our distribution plates are manufactured from 100% cast acrylic and assembled in the USA by PPCs employees. In 2020 we upgraded from our little hobby machine to a Laguna Smartshop II Maker housed in it’s very own building on PPCs property. This machine alone has allowed us to vastly increase our production rates as well as the overall quality of milling. Using mainly Datron tools we have been able to achieve finishes straight off the bed that have yet to be matched by anyone else in the market. We continue to upgrade and improve our manufacturing process almost daily and are very excited to see how much further we can lift the bar for the quality of water cooling manifolds.
Standing Out From The Rest
Now that numerous brands have started developing their own distribution plates, we have taken extra steps to ensure ours will stand out. Not only is the quality of our millwork a cut above the rest but we offer multiple ways to customize each and every design we produce. We have ten different fastener colors to choose from, along with multiple head choices such as button head and flat.
Beyond color matched screws the “Effectz” resin inlay option allows us to create completely unique manifolds. These resin inlays are made from high quality epoxy resin that is poured into each of the channels no more than a millimeter thick to avoid any flow restrictions. With nearly every color option under the sun at our disposal, we can guarantee that no two manifolds will ever be alike.
The surface finish of milled acrylic is a common point of debate when it comes to water cooling distribution plates. Which is exactly why we offer every option possible for surface finishes as well. Between the top of the line tools we use and a quick polish afterwards, we can achieve a crystal clear surface finish that gives glass a run for its money. With the use of some abrasives we can also achieve the perfect satin, or polished, finish that allows for some of the best lighting effects possible.
Perhaps plain acrylic isn’t enough for your high end custom build? With our UV Printing service we are able to overlay nearly any image onto the surface of your manifold. The UV cured paint provides limitless color options, while maintaining a durable surface finish that will stand the tests of time. Either bring your own images or work directly with our graphic designer to create the exact design that you dreamed up.
Maybe you have a custom, one-off type of chassis, or a case that doesn’t have any distros designed for it yet? Well you need not worry, as we can work with you to create the perfect manifold that fits both the components in your system as well as the case itself.
By now you should be able to determine that the options you get with Channelz distribution plates is basically endless… and nearly overwhelming!
