Ordered a couple of special order water blocks from them. Took them about 2 weeks to get stock and get them shipped. The UPS they use is insanely quick. My blocks shipped on the 29th and I'll get them on Monday. That is about 4-5x as fast (shipping time) as buying from stores based in the USA and it costs significantly less.

Although their prices for American brands (Swiftech, Koolance, XSPC) are kind of high but that is expected.

Like, if you use ground shipping with UPS, you pay at your door. Air mail/ Express is included in the price. That's why it costs more, because you don't pay at the door.

I think German postal service is crazy efficient.

I remember buying stuff from MDPC-X for my sleeving. Ordered it on sunday night (EST) and got my order on thursday. From GER to CAN.

Very impressed.

Depends on what you buy. Contrast what you pay them brokerage & Tax upfront to what you would pay here in applicable sales tax & domestic shipping cost. Or even shipping from the states for that matter. Certain parts are simply cheaper to get and to have shipped. I saved 80 bucks on my build.
