Hiatus Explanation

Hey guys, it's Tim here again.

We at JWtechparts sincerely apologise for the lack of dedication we have put into our blog. The reasoning behind our terrible lack of updates can solely be blamed on the intense university semester we had just faced. However, we are now over and done with that dynasty and are ready to bring you back the latest updates and newest released gadgets and computer parts on the market. To all of our followers who continue to support the blog we thank you for your dedication.

Our next update will be released within the next 24 hours, so make sure you stick around to hear about whats up next.

Edit: Ok I think our next update will be to the blogs layout.

Where to find information.

Hi guys, its Tim here bringing you another post.

Just a quick one.

Todays post is about all the places that you can find information about the latest parts and upcoming releases.

Video reviews: 3dgameman is constantly sent the latest parts right to his door. He films unboxing of all parts and shows every feature and device that comes with each part. His reviews on cases are very useful and should be considered watching before purchasing the case you have your eyes set on.

Web articles: Guru3d and Tomshardware are two of my favorite sites to read reviews on parts that I find interesting. Otherwise, just search Google for the part you are interested in and a review is bound to show up.

There are hundreds of options too choose from but these are just a small sample of some of the better sites.

If you have your own sources of great information about gadgets and PC parts please share with us is the comment section.

Hi guys, Tim here bringing you a quick post about power supplies.

When I'm building a new PC, there are two things i like to future proof. These are the case and PSU.

Choosing the right power supply is very important during initial construction. You need to find something that wont burn out and will be able to power everything you throw at it and more.

Brands: Brand name plays a big role in deciding which power supply you should get. Buying a generic PSU could lead to disastrous results. some of the brand names I trust are: Thermaltake, Corsair and Coolermaster. There are some more less known brands that produce fine PSUs, however, research should be conducted before choosing these brands.

Power: Wattage plays a big role in future proofing or in power hungry rigs. Making sure you have what you need is imperative especially in multi GPU systems.

Modular design: A modular designed power supply can be very helpful for people working with small cases. Power supplies with large wattage tend to clog up cases with too many cables. Being able to remove these cables when appropriate cuts down on clutter and avoids decreasing airflow.

If you have your own say on power supplies or would like to mention other brands you have please leave a comment.

From the soil.

Hi guys, it's Tim again bringing you another post from JWTechParts.

Todays post is about a man's DIY project that was started over a year ago. His idea? Geothermal CPU cooling system.

What is it? From what I gathered it is a water based cooling system that pumps water through long piping underground in order to cool down the liquid, this liquid is then flows over a heat exchange point in order to bring the temperature of the CPU down.

All the information about how he did it can be found at

This truly is a fantastic project that has shown very interesting and successful results. I can not even comprehend going to this effort to bring my CPU temp down (i'm still on stock cooling). However, for all those DIYers out there this is definitely a project worth looking at.
