My SIDEWINDER ORDER:This company is simply incredible,very fast service,i mean really fast:I ordered at 8:45 pm thursday night,35 minutes later,Gary called me back to verify my order and to tell me that he would sleeve all my fansand would ship the order as soon as the sleeving was done.

The next morning,i found out that NCIX ran out of thermochill pa120.3.Who do you think i turned to,you guessed it,Gary from sidewinder.I called Sidewinder and Gary picks up the phone,I asked him if he could ship the thermochill rad and all the fittings all in one go with my first order.No problem sir,will do as requested.Man,i felt so important when i was talking to him and it was like i was his first client ever,but they have been in business for 8 years now.
So i ordered a couple more things and then he said to me that he would try to ship everything today(friday morning)but wasnt sure since he had to sleeve 16 fans.

At exactly 3:30 pm EST friday i got my confirmation that my order had shipped

I was actually shocked at the speed Gary processed my order and shipped it.
So basically,i ordered stuff,modify my order,added some more stuff,my order was processed,shipped and all that in less 16 hours.INCREDIBLE SERVICE AND VERY FAST.prices were good and some items were low priced.

Here's my order at Sidewinder:

THE ORDER IS IN THE OTHER POST BELOW

Wow...the only thing I would have changed is the DVD drive to a Pioneer and the DHX memory to the Dominator XMP modules.

Looking sweet, though. Look forward to seeing the build progress.

Default Biggest Update

I recieved today my biggest order,my NCIX order as finally arrived.

I'm still missing both HD3870 turbo which are supposed to arrive thursday next week and the RAM which will be here by next wednesday

My rig is gonna be built next week-end and starting friday night,you will see the progress being made during the Built-O-Fest 2008.
It's gonna be a lean,mean gaming machine



UPDATE 21 jan.

I got my ram today from NCIX.The only thing i can say is that they are really nice looking.

I didnt like the way it was packaged tho.Very poor packaging for such a delicate itemThey actually put the ram staight in the box and filled the top with foam,nothing on the bottom.The ram was just sitting in the box with no foam insulation underneath


UPDATE 22jan.

I got my thermochill barbs that i ordered from DC,THEY DO NOT HAVE the rubber O-ring that was advertised on their site.I'm really dissapointed cause i thought i was buying the ones with an O-ring.Thermochill actually makes 2 different barbs,one with an O-ring and another one without.

Look carefully before ordering,NCIX and DC have the thermochill barbs WITHOUT THE O-ring.
