I'm happy to announce that PCPartPicker now lists external hard drives! Whether you're including it into your part list or looking for great external storage deals, we now have you covered.

This initial rollout supports desktop and portable drives ranging in capacity from 120GB to over 20TB. We are not currently listing NAS devices yet, but hope to support them in the future.

We're continually adding new drives to our listings. However if you can't find the one you're looking for let us know in the forums and we'll get it added promptly.

Um... Could you also filter them by color?

I was wondering when pcpartpicker would do this. Any future plans to add printers?

philip staff submitter 10 Builds 10 points 29 months ago

I think that's very possible. We hope to expand out our categories quite a bit (and in relatively short order).

Rashiq 4 points 29 months ago

Hail Phillip!! I also hope to see pen drives and some day.................... computer desks (LOL! I know this isn't a furniture site but I can't seem to find any desk which will accommodate 5 32 inch monitor in landscape mode).

Skylord 1 point 27 months ago

Why five monitors?

Rashiq 1 point 27 months ago

Why not? LOL

Nazulle 1 point 6 months ago

5 is not enough. Go for 6 :p

dabeastdaddy 1 Build 2 points 29 months ago

system controllers?

MLGComputers 1 Build 1 point 29 months ago

Maybe some custom loop parts might have been more useful....

philip staff submitter 10 Builds 8 points 29 months ago

Water cooling components are several orders of magnitude more work labor for data entry (thousands of fittings alone, much less other components) as well as compatibility evaluation. It's something we'd like to add sometime in the future, but it's a tremendous amount of work to get there.

piemancoder 2 points 29 months ago

An alternative would be making a sister or branched off site of pcpartpicker for watercooling, with the ability to add chosen parts as pcpartpicker item in the final build.

ivan_lazarov 5 Builds 2 points 29 months ago

Could you not collaborate with other websites such as http://www.aquatuning.co.uk/ who already have the database of thousands of components? They will probably be interested as well because you will bring customers to them, so mutual benefits :)

plgdg 1 Build 1 point 29 months ago

I'm a sad panda...

Maybe start with core water cooling parts (water blocks, rads, reservoirs, pumps)?

MLGComputers 1 Build -1 points 29 months ago

Scared someone would say something like you just said...

Tranceplant 1 Build 1 point 29 months ago

Yes!! About time! Thank you! :)

RubenFasola 1 point 29 months ago

Any future plans to add mouse+keyboard kit in a different category?

Any plans to add a wireless drive filter?

philip staff submitter 10 Builds 1 point 29 months ago

I think so. Maclamby (who added all the external drives) and I talked about the wireless ones. I think we'll add them at some point, but decided to stick to the simpler ones for the initial rollout. Now that things have settled he and I can chat more about it.

JohnF_Kentucky 1 point 29 months ago

Is it possible to add a filter for SSD external drives?

It would be pretty neat :)

And thanks for that, it's a pretty great addition!

maclamby staff 7 Builds 4 points 29 months ago

That should be doable. Thanks for the suggestion!

Lachlantula 1 Build 2 points 29 months ago

Do they exist?

DubstepAardvark 2 points 29 months ago

Ya dude Samsung just came out with one I believe

Lachlantula 1 Build 2 points 29 months ago

Cool. I want.

vtskiman 1 point 29 months ago

No fix yet on the link / filter add error. When say, adding/searching memory, on the upper right, next to set price alert - there is am "Add From Filter" just to its right. Click on it and it ADDS a FOAM filter to your parts list. It does not allow you to set a "From" filter - I assume it supposed to allow you to select specific vendors. Hope, add a FOAM filter. Very Freakin' Odd!

manirelli staff 8 Builds 1 point 29 months ago

I'm not sure what you mean by "FOAM" but the from filter button adds a selection of parts based on the filters you have set. Retailers are not taken into account for that.

vtskiman 1 point 28 months ago

Click on it and you'll see what I mean

bedog12345 1 point 29 months ago

there are several errors i noticed the other day when looking. a few drives linked to other sized rives.

philip staff submitter 10 Builds 1 point 29 months ago

If you see those please let us know so we can correct them.

ivan_lazarov 5 Builds 1 point 29 months ago

@philip have you thought about water cooling expansion? There is lack of a proper water cooling configuration platform that tells you the compatibility between different components (blocks, fittings, tubes, reservoirs etc). I have just went through all water cooling manufacturers and distributors in the UK, US and Europe, most of the websites were horrible... At the moment PCpartpicker is my favorite PC community, partlist log, and build showcase portal. If you include water cooling you will simply be the best! Thank you for your work and the effort you put into this website, I appreciate it!

when will you guys add server parts

shavashav 2 Builds 1 point 28 months ago

Looking for one of these on the cheap to use as a Steam drive, so this definitely couldn't come at a better time as now I have access to PCP price drops database! You guys are good.

strayasteve 1 Build 1 point 27 months ago

Could you please add a height or fan size filter for CPU Coolers. I am currently looking for a small cooler to fit under a drive bay converter in my HTPC case and can only find out dimensions when I click through to the sellers page

love the website btw :) i have been learning alot

BlackDragonETM 1 point 26 months ago

Is it possible we could also get a filter for what year a component is released. there's been a few times when it would have been a big help when comparing a to b.
