100% new to water cooling - Page 3

post #21 of 29
I find that "local computer stores" do not want to get involved with watercooling, I will agree there must be exceptions. One store I dealt with quite a bit in my "non-enthusiast" days ran me out pretty quick when I brought up overclocking and watercooling.

DUH! why would a local retail store want you to over clock?

They want you to come in and pick up a new CPU the day it comes out every time a new one comes out, otherwise they are loosing business.

Local shops wouldn't and can't make money on a very very few local people that water cool or over clock their computer, therefore it would be a complete waste for a local shop to support or even supply water cooling and over clocking gear

We do have a local store that is more receptive to overclocking,meaning the employees have some tips and they carry BE's on the shelves and some boards that handle locked multi cpu's. This one store also has a real minimum amount of watercooling gear on the shelves. The guy that ran me out is very conservative with many business accounts and thinks that water cooling rigs leak and cause damage, his customers just want it stock .I really don't think it has anything to do with wanting to sell you a new cpu. I myself never adopted the viewpoint "new cpu or just overclock this one"? it does not work like that.When I go for a new cpu I want more than just an improvement in clock speed, there is more to a cpu than clock speed you know?

I really hope you are not talking to me? (mainly in the very last sentence)

Would be a complete smack in the face... I think that if any one needs a smack in the face and a good wake up call it would be you.

Have you ever worked in a computer shop or understand what a business is in business for?

Well I have and have experienced all the of things you are talking about, I had people come in and talk to me about over clocking and water cooling and high end coolers... my boss told me directly that if I ever try to do anything other then sell them the best thing in the store that he would fire me on the spot, if I was to help someone to over clock I would be gone. He knew that I had gaming rigs and that I knew how to over clock but he didn't want me telling his customers that.

If you can answer that then you might understand where my statement was coming from and pull your head out of the sand.

What was your bosses objection to overclocking? one of the two stores I did mention is all for it, I explained why the second is not. I guess you did not sell many high end motherboards if you could not stress their ability to work with the cpu in overclocking. How would a guy sell an ASUS Maximus 1V Extreme (for 375.00) if he could not talk about overclocking?

I have it, your instructions were to "only sell the best things in the store" but your store was full of ****.

You know how to read or you just trying to start a argument?

this is where I worked in high school and it was never "my store". he also didn't carry $300 + motherboards. and not everyone buys a $300 + mother board just to over clock.

Kind of rude and annoying to read your posts

You never did explain why your boss objected to overclocking. I described two stores,one that supports overcocking and one that does not, you worked (sorry to have made you the owner)in the store that did not support overclocking.

No argument at all, I am just responding to your question of "why would a local retail store want you to overclock"? You do not get it that there is more than one type of "local retail store" I just called mine and they will price match newegg on the Maximus 1V and give overclocking tips, even if I do not buy my cpu from them.

It would be funny if you went to Best Buy and asked, hey, do you guys have the AMD Radeon HD 6990? The local best buy here only goes up to the 5770. They do have the 480 somehow though. No watercooling. Also, the only case they have is the Antec 300.

Go to shopsws.com and you will see my "local retail store". They don't list the 6990,top ATI gpu is the 6970 at 379.00 and the NIVIDIA580 at 559.00.
