    I'm really saddened by this. I bought most of my water cooling gear from them over the years and they were one of the top companies to deal with.

    I guess this is what a triple dip recession does in the long term...

    Damn it was going to be ordering a load of watercooling gear from them next month.

    Hopefully Scan start to stock more watercooling components now so I can just buy everything from one place.

    Very sad when this happens. Feel for the guys who work there. Hope they find something soon.

    :waah: That is dreadful to find out.
    I hope all their staff manage to find new jobs without too much hassle.

    They were the only place that I ever used for buying my water cooling equipment, so it's a real shame to lose them.
    Anyone got any recommendations for another liquid cooling supplier?

    Special Tech were certainly near the top with regards to customer services.

    Sorry to see the company go.

    As I posted in the news thread:

    Pretty gutted to hear this. They were one of my favourite suppliers.

    Without them I wouldn't have had a rigid tubing cooled machine for well over a year. They always seemed to be the first to get new watercooling products out there.

    I for one will miss them

    I'm gutted, I also used them too for my stuff. They were always well competitively priced and service was great. It's a shame when this kind of thing happens to such a good shop!
