I have purchased from them many times, their prices are good and orders are automatic..BUT--- if you want help or try to contact them or want a warranty forget it. They do EVERYTHING to avoid. they turned off their e-mail system for a long time (when I had a problem with overdue goods and faulty memory, i tried contacting GEIL direct who contacted OC uk and got them to promise to contact me _ 1 year later still no contact) Phone lines were ignored!!!! I also had an expensive graphics card Ati x80XL -over £317 which failed after 53 weeks, I hadn't used it for the first 5 weeks because of a supply problem of another item (generated by them) and couldn't build the system - their response by e-mail -sorry out of warranty! (I actually got a response this time, but it was from the warranty dept!) but any responsible/reputable company worth anything would have replaced it. AVOID AT ALL TIMES !! I used to put a lot of trade their way too!, indirectly I used to put over £12K/year so they have now lost this. AVOID AVOID
I saw threads with complaints against other suppliers and thought it was OK as they appeared to be left on. I am really annoyed with OC uk. The saga of ordering went on for months and then I had faulty goods (memory) and now more of the goods I had have died!.Memory AGAIN (geil) I have had to bin the expensive video card so I have lost out big style through OC uk
there is no problem coming to the forum asking for help and explaining the problem, but telling people not to buy from a company is not up to you. each person makes a decision on where to buy based on a number of factors. many use this forum as a sounding ground as to how a particular company perform in the c/s area and see what individuals reactions are. you will also find there are plenty of knowledgeable people out there who will give sound advice as to possible solutions as spuds has done above. good luck with your quest.
Whilst you have given an answer, I had chucked the board based on OC's response (after 53 weeks =out of warranty)so I cannot go further with them. My point was to let others know their attitude. So Thx again and i will close this, i hope the FE ammends the original so thers can still see
