General Water Cooled Computer questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Somebody I know has created a business for himself selling custom water cooled computers. The website is www.primordialcomputers.com. He's doing pretty well as I've seen him posting a nice Lambo that's his. These computers look pretty nice. I asked him what he did and how he started. He just told me he started in his bedroom with 2 people, and now he has 16 employees building computers. Many of us can build water cooled computers. Really nice ones. But how do one make a business like that and be really successful? Apparently he didn't have very much money to start, I suppose atleast a few grand because he needed to buy a decent amount of parts to learn about the field. Also do these kind of companies have all of the parts in stock? Or do they wait until they have a list of parts then they buy it?

ANYBODY! Just put what you think. I'm sure thread can open some doors up for some people because most of us have the skills to build computers!!

Lets say you have an budget of 3000, build 6 similar configurations for roughly 500 each, sell them for 600-700 or more for example. Over time it'll increase your profit and eventually you'll be able to get a higher computer configuration. But yeah, it's pretty much like what he said, just start small, there is a 50/50 chance that it'll become a business but it is up to you to take the chance. Another thing is that the computers have to be somewhat unique in its own ways. The companies, at least I think have their parts in stock, especially if they constantly get buyers to buy their builds.
I can steer you in one way?

Pretty much the guy (Rob Dahm) started his computer business at a pretty young age starting small and taking big risks that could've went either way. thumb.gif
