Hi my mate just ordered a 2k pc from them wondered if anyone has used them before?

I've used them for buying components and up till now service has been first rate, even faulty stuff has been dealt with very good service and very quick turnaround.

Haven't used them myself, but they use to have some good reports on this forum. You don't seem to see them mentioned much on the forum nowadays though.

Tried to do a forum search, using the search box, but ended up with the Microsoft advert?.

I used them once a very long time back when the first appeared on the internet, I paid a premium price for an Intel pentium processor which was said to be tested and guaranteed to be overclockable, it came in a box with the seal broken but when fitted into the motherboard and booted up it opened with an Intel splash screen announcing something like "Welcome to the first bootup of your new Intel processor"

So I have never used them again

Cheers HC

Dve that makes sense.

His PC came today like he paid for. But they havnt fitted his graphic cards. He seems to have all the boxes and paperwork he should have. I have left him in his room fitting the graphic cards wiill let you all know how it goes.

Check inside the case to see if the Power Cables are connected ?

rdave13 my advice was put it all in the box and ring customer service when their open.

It was a cable. that had come loose. CD know working.

I was rereading their procudt description and it says - 8 Hours stressed tested and quality controlled

Jameslayer the reason the graphic cards are not in place may be because in transit those cards are so big they can put a lot of strain on what is a fragile part of a mobo.

As for a cable that can work loose at any time, maybe even when some one is attempting to replace a card.

If I build a pc for any one I always take out the card and replace it at their house.

It's a 2 minute job to replace them once they have arrived at the destination, was there any info with the pc as regards cards not being in place.
