only place that sells the one i need is performance pc also
Well, most companies these days will ask you to cover shipping--I know, it sucks. If you order something that's only worth 5-6 bucks that breaks, the shipping becomes essentially more than the product, but products break, and I wouldn't hold it against Sidewinder that something broke. The correspondence thing is a different issue though, haha.
I can't say I've had an excellent experience with Performance-PC because I've never had to return anything, but I shop there pretty often, and they have never once messed up my order, so I can say I've had a pretty good experience overall.
However, if something went wrong with one of the products I ordered from them, I naturally assume that I would be paying cross-shipping. Even Newegg generally expects me to pay for shipping back to them unless I can talk to a personal rep and argue my way through it.
But yeah... Every company has their bad stories, so I guess you have to take that with a grain of salt.
Here is a link of the waterblock that I think you're looking at: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=27819
That being said, they are sold it, and it does not indicate that the waterblock is a revised version. However, I'm not sure if their nickel issue even affected the Nvidia 400 line. I think it was more of a 500 series thing last I checked? Might need confirmation.
