Default Performance PCs

I just want to say if anyone has any hesitations from ordering from these guys don't!

On the 15th of September I ordered a XSPC top for my swiftech pump and had it shipped via USPS mail service. I was expecting 3-4 weeks for this to show up but I just picked it up today (September 24).

They are kind enough to label it as a "gift" when shipping it over the border.

Definitely would give these guys more business again..

Oh and the order was from Florida to Vancouver

Hey I thought you said you were going to tell me, I wanted some stuff too :P..

But On the topic, Performance PCs have been great all around, according to lots of people they rate their service as good as Petra's.

I have ordered from there like 3-4 times, very happy with them all the way around, and like you said came marked as a gift.

Yeah, PPC's is a solid company. I've gotten about half a dozen orders from them so far, and the longest shipping time was about 10 days, while most took about 5-7. Everything's well-packaged, too. Just make sure you don't ship UPS, that's all. That's an excellent res/top unit too. A little slower on the bleeding because of the design, but it shuts up eventually.
Out of curiosity... why is this in "General Software"?

I'll have to try performance PC's out. I'd pretty much written off the US stores due to customs charges. Pump-top looks real nice too.

Hey enaberif, it would be nice of you to tell us how much was the shipping cost itself. I was looking at some stuff, $40 worth of stuff, just about 3lbs, they estimated me about $14 (United States Postal Service (1 x 2.60lbs) (First Class Mail International Package (Varies) (No Tracking))

Quite reasonable in my opinions, since a mininum order from ncix costs you $10 for ground shipping.
