Windows 7: Frozen CPU Closed Down?

Checking out can cause problems.
Like all sites you order from you must check the box that indicates that you agree to the terms ect. Now try to find that box. It's hide amongst all the trash. Once you find that box and check it the rest goes pretty smooth. I did bring this to their attention and all I got was smart mouth on how great their check out was and they were not going to change it.

I've also seen reports about PPCs attitude issue, especially on returns. I've been fortunate and never had a problem with them (so far).

Btw, FCPU finally put up a small (as in tiny) notice on their website that they will not be processing orders until future notice.

Just took a look at Performance PC for the first time in quite a while.

What a mess. Cluttered is an understatement.

I took a quick look at CPU heatsinks. Only one Noctua. No stock on the Scythe I might be interested in.

The things I saw that were familiar weren't cheaper than at more user-friendly competitors.

Given the clutter and disorganization, what's the attraction?

Some stuff nobody else has at any price?

It used to be a contest between PPCs and FCPU as to which would have the best bottom line on items. You had to check what the total cost of the item(s) and shipping was because both had inflated prices for shipping and handling. PPCs usually had lower product prices but higher charges for shipping and handling while FCPU was the other way around. Overall, both pretty much had the same bottom line but you still had to check. PPCs had a 5.5% discount code available (ocn55) on all orders until recently when they set a minimum amount for an order to qualify for the discount. FCPU had a 5% discount code available (pcapex).

I only ordered products from them if I couldn't find them cheaper elsewhere with the exception of Chinese vendors since delivery times are so absurdly long from China. I buy from Chinese vendors only if I can't find what I need stateside. I recently needed a USB3.0 extension so I could plug my new, fat Wi-Fi adapter into the rear I/O panel. I could not find one stateside so I ordered a couple from a Chinese vendor through fleabay. It took a little over three weeks to get them via airmail! If they had gone by boat, they would probably still be floating offshore of Los Angeles.

Right now, I'm steamed over some coax connector compression tools I ordered through Amazon. I had to use a Marketplace vendor since Amazon was out of stock (ironically, they are back in stock). The vendor took five days to fill the order then apparently used what appears to be a new dog sled delivery service. It shipped Saturday. At first they said it was going to be here this Tuesday. Then they changed it to Thursday. Now they are saying this Thursday to the following Tuesday! What really bites my ample asset is they keep saying the shipment is on time! I know the snow storms have slowed things down (it's coming out of New York) but this is ridiculous!

When I use Performance PC I always chose Fedex and the deliveries where right on time.
When the delivery said it would be there on Friday I new it would be between noon and one.
The Fedex driver doesn't know I don't hear well so I never really heard the knock on the door.
On my way to the coffee pot I would just do a quick check and presto.

I always used the cheapest rate for shipping. I use a mail service to receive my mail (including packages) so, no matter what time a package gets delivered, it's received and kept indoors in a secure place until I go to pick it up. Since my mail service is a business, packages can't be just dropped at the door anytime day or night. It's a lot safer than home delivery.

There is a reason I live in the deserts of AZ! I don't walk so well either, depending on the day, so I depend on my little F150.

Too bad about FrozenCPU, I just found out about it as I've been looking at stuff for upgrades. I bought stuff from them when I transfered everything to this Lian Li case. Also from Xoxide and Performance PC. Local shops I used to buy from have disappeared over the years and that is a real loss as I especially don't like buying motherboards online in case of RMA crap. About all I have left is a Microcenter about 40 minutes away.

Strange what appears to have happened at FrozenCPU with an unstable owner.

The latest news is the owner is trying to hire new staff and reopen sometime in the future.
