Danger Den to cease trading

Danger Den to cease trading

Dangerden is well-known for manufacturing high-quality waterblocks

Water cooling hardware manufacturer Danger Den announced yesterday that is is to cease trading. A notice on the company's website states that the owners will be pursuing other interests.

The statement reads:

'After 12 years our hobby has come to an end.

It’s time to pursue other interests and Danger Den will be closing its doors.

Thank you for all your support over the years,

we’ve enjoyed being part of your modding community.

~ Dan, Jeremy, Dennis, and Rokk
'


Another statement mentions that from Halloween till 5th November, there will be a 75 per cent reduction in all sales.

Danger Den has been trading for twelve years, being registered in 2000 by Jeremy Burnett, Dennis Leach, and Dan Stephens. The company was one of the pioneers of off-the-shelf water-cooling components with waterblocks such as the Maze and RBX proving very popular.

The company also branched out into graphics card waterblocks, cases and reservoirs amongst other things and its products were available around the world.

Here's a small tribute to some of the great products Danger Den has sent our way over the years.

Guessing the link is wrong...

Fixed.

A real shame. I have owned a few DD blocks over the years, and whilst my personal preference has always been EK it's always sad to see a well loved enthusiast name wind down.

Huh. Never expected them to go away - I thought they were a relatively big player in the WC world..
Apocalypso 1st November 2012, 12:46 Quote
Well that's a shame, my very first blocks were Danger Den. I wish them all the very best though.
Spreadie 1st November 2012, 12:51 Quote
Wow!

I had a few DD parts over the years, this is a real shame.

Although, I never realised where the company name came from until now.

Dan-Jer-Den :o

Real shame, they have a good reputation for quality parts in the WC market, before they disappear completely could they send all the dimension specs of their parts so we can Sketchup them accurately

My first loop some 8 years ago was all DD... sad face.

To my eternal shame, up until recently I hadn't made the link between Linux, Linus Torvalds and Unix :o:o:o

So feel better about yourself.

this is sad news. Loved danger den products, my first watercooling build was danger den blocks.
Shirty 1st November 2012, 13:31 Quote
I still have some DD blocks in the garage.

Off topic, Sc0rian what did you do in a former life to earn neg rep? I've meant to ask a few times before.
Anfield 1st November 2012, 13:32 Quote
Ouch that sucks,I'll miss them.
Parge 1st November 2012, 14:23 Quote
In fairness, they haven't made much worth buying in quite a few years.
XXAOSICXX 1st November 2012, 14:26 Quote
A 75% reduction in sales? So they're only doing a quarter of the sales they did before? :p
Bindibadgi 1st November 2012, 15:11 Quote
Wow massively sad news. Wish the guys good luck in the next endeavour.

I honestly have no idea My posting pretty much stopped in the last 3-4years, so must have been a long time ago. I blame dom__ (lol if he is still about)

You can go back 4 years on one page of my posts, haha.

Ruined it now I'm afraid

I actually asked Jeremy once if Danger Den was an amalgamation of their names and he said it wasn't. I thought he was maybe pulling my leg and said so but he was quite earnest in insisting it wasn't.

Also the 75% the article mentions is not a 75% drop in sales--it's a 75% off sale on all remaining inventory I believe.

Such a shame.... :(.

Which is why their server is slammed right now.

Not sad to see them go. Back in the day they had good products but lately I havent even considered using them again.

I had to laugh at Sketchuping accurately.

But sad to see DD going out of business. A relative surprise to me.

I forgot to laugh..

Nooooooooooooooooo

What a shame :( got two of there blocks for my 580's
Nexxo 1st November 2012, 21:45 Quote
End of an era. :(

I still have a Danger Den waterblock on my GPU.
Tynecider 1st November 2012, 22:26 Quote
My P4 Prescott was cooled by their handy work.
Probably the only chip I ever owned that needed water for a smallish O/C (unless you used those ghastly deltas!!)
knuck 1st November 2012, 22:59 Quote
I'm a sad panda :(
Journeyer 2nd November 2012, 08:58 Quote
Awww, that's a shame. I'll be toasting them with some good scotch tonight I think.
I've been running DD-stuff ever since I first got into watercooling some 11 years ago, and I still have a couple of first gen DD-blocks sitting on my shelf. My CPU-block today is a silver TDX that I bought five years ago, and it still performs magnificently.

Ouch. Another cool small business smacked by the economy. Hopefully they can still work as a general fabrication shop.

I also has a sad :( DD have been a go-to company for me since the very beginning. My own first loop was actually 80% Swiftech, but I'd been using DD parts in other builds for more than a year before that. I'll be really sad to see them go, they have had some awesome products over the years. I feel like making use of some of their limited edition blocks that I have tucked away for a tribute build now.

Anyone know where I could get my hands on a (DD) torture rack?

SO sad to see them go almost all my water cooling stuff is from them. They started this hobbie of water cooling and have used many of Danger Den products over the years.

First abit, and DFI. Now DD. A lot of very good quality manufacturers (IMO) have gone over recent years.

Shame to see you go DD.
Mighty Yoshimi 4th November 2012, 14:23 Quote
My first blocks were DD NB Block CPU and 7900GTX SLI blocks!
