Another Victim of the Global Economic Downturn

One of the few UK based watercooling parts specialists has today ceased trading. Formed in 2004, Aqua-PC's has become yet another statistic in the current downturn in the global economy. In a short statement on their website and on their forum they had the following to say:

Aqua-Pcs Cease Trading - Effective 03/03/09
Unfortunately due to the current economic climate Aqua-Pcs has become insolvent and has ceased trading.
Please contact with any queries.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for supporting us over the years.


Aqua-PC's started out their business life by importing Aqua Computer products into the UK and reselling them to the trade sector. By 2006, they were ready for the next step, which was to open a web based retail shop offering a limited range of watercooling  products. Since then, Aqua-PC's increased their operations to include a wider range of products. Aqua-PC's also offered PC case modifications as part of their services, such as laser cutting, powder coating, spray painting, anodising and even custom engraving.

It is with regret that we have to report on this latest development, especially as watercooling parts retailers are so few and far between here in the UK. We wish Pascal and his team all the best in their futures.

Really strting to pull my hair out, should be getting minimum 180kb/s outgoing but last night it dropped right down and now its not even doing 10kb/s.

Its the new download rig, I did have problems with the original rig but once it was set up it was spot on.

Still getting 2.3-2.6mb/s incoming, just need to sort out the seeding.

Any ideas peeps Im going mad!

hey tom

you made sure the port utorrent is using is open? check by going options > speed guide > test if port is forwarded properly

also make sure the tracker that is being used is functioning properly

make sure there are people to seed to (test with diff torrents)

make sure your isp does not block p2p/torrents (if so use encryption or switch isp)


you may want to "flush torrents" if the site you are using allows that
