If I am you have to understand the amount of time and work that would have to go into putting that together on our website and being able to maintain the stock of the separate items in order to keep them available to purchase on our website. I'm not saying that it can't or won't be done. It will have to depend on what we determine the demand to be and whether or not that demand warrants the amount of time, effort, and costs involved.

Heh.. I'm a web developer.. I do that kinda stuff for a living.

That is why I was just saying, an easy dirty solution would be an option to just add that all to the cart, and not just as an actual product. The rest of overhead of the product maintenance is already going to happen as it was previously stated the tubing is going to be put on sale, and fittings were already on sale.

I was assuming you kept normal stock of these items for sales from your site, if that isn't the case then the ease and convenience of the solution goes down rapidly.

Of course we keep normal stock of these items, but the problem arises when we suddenly have to support packages that are offered on our website with these same items. I have a better understanding now of what you're talking about. You're not saying that we need to necessarily have pre-packaged add-ons, but that we should give detailed suggestions about optional configurations and the items that would need to be purchased for those configurations. This is a more doable solution than the one that I thought you were suggesting. Once the product is actually released this will definitely be something that we'll look at doing so that our customers will have some clear ideas about what they'll need to upgrade the kit.

Any chance you'll be shipping these bad boys with white tubing?

As of right now we don't have any plans to ship these with white tubing. We will be offering different color options separately though through our website about the same time that the H220 is released.

I think we are all on the same page now.

Ok, let me ask you this. I have a certain chip, and a certain video card. What exactly, in total, do I need to order in addition to the H220. More fittings, more tubing, GPU block, more liquid to fill it, do I need another radiator, will it fit in my case? I am not asking you right now, but how do you want people to figure that out? Do you want people to call and ask specifics?

I agree that some will spend 30% or 40% more money for the H220 vs the Antec or Corsair even if they will never expand. It appears to be a better, quieter product. My point is that the majority of your H220 customers will think, at least in the back of their mind, that expandability (even it happens at some indeterminate time in the future) helps justify the higher price point. Making that expandability as easy as possible for complete water cooling newbs is in your best interest.

I go to a website, say what GPU(s) I have, the site then lists all the extras I need to order. It will also suggest whether another rad or two is recommended, and what cases it will fit.

color options for the whole unit? so does that mean I could get a white block+rad drool.gif

Sounds great, I know I'm responding a lot about this and I don't want to give you the impression I am in any way shape or form unhappy. The involvement of you and stephen and others on this boards, and with the community has sold me with you guys for this product. The product looks fantastic, and the customer feedback is exceptional. You all obviously know what you are doing, and I would be surprised if a similar option or solution had not been discussed already.

Keep up the good work, and I hope the ~270$ of my money you will get when this product is released goes to producing another similarly awesome product in the future.

No, I was only talking about the tubing. We don't have any plans right now to make the pump or radiator in other color choices.

Oh ok, sounds good smile.gif

But you should consider offering the pump/rad in different colors. People care about aesthetics and it could give you guys a nice step up from the competition..

In regards to your specific system it would be virtually impossible to produce a list of compatible options for your specific components. You have to remember that in terms of GPUs in particular the manufacturers often change the specifics of their PCB without notifying anyone and therefore rendering any specific option that we give a customer obsolete. This is a constant headache for us and I'm sure for our customers as well. I would suggest that for their specific configuration and hardware that they either call us directly or through the forum on our website. Right now that's about the best we can do because that's the best solution to receive real-time responses and answers.
