The funny thing is it says "Usually ships same business day". Everyone so far I have talked to about it would beg to the contrary.

Being in Kansas, shipment from FCPU takes 2 days - PPCS takes 4 days. and I believe that Sidewinders is the only NA based Durelene reseller .... I take it back ! Petras Tech Shop sales Durelene

Yah I have a basic rule for expecting shipments to arrive at mi casa - order it AHEAD of expected need time ... that's half the game of this hobby - waiting on parts that you didn't know that you needed ..... I feel your pain, bud.

ADD: ummm ... ? has anyone ever noticed that Sidewinders and Petras Tech Shop have the exact same address ... ??

They both use yahoo secure checkout, so it's the same template. Cheaper than Google IIRC, so that is probably why. And I did order it ahead of time, that is what sucks. I ordered it on the weekend, before my other fittings even got here (the second order won't even be here til tomorrow), so I imagined with an order placed Sunday they would have shipped it before Thursday when they tout that "usually same business day" crap. Oh well, I ordered enough to make some mistakes, have some extra and enough to accommodate adding 2 more 480's with a pedestal in the near future (hopefully), so I shouldn't have to deal with them again. I'll order it from Petra Tech next time to see how they are with shipping.


While I understand that shipping takes the time it takes, Socketus, nevertheless I HAVE to pay for 2 day shipping in Hawaii for pretty much everything online (rarely any other options), and I expect when paying that much that it should get here in at least 3 days. I never hold firm to 2 days, even though Fedex has NEVER been more than 2 days, sometimes even delivering it early and within 1 day! But, Sidewinder only offered UPS and USPS. UPS 2 day was $67 for 12 feet of Durelene!?! So of course I opted for the USPS at $25.

Sorry to hear of the delay Addiction.

I found that Sidewinder was not responding to emails for some time until the last few days. I assume they where on holiday. Can't recall them stating that though. Usually found Gary's team responsive otherwise..... Anyway

Look forward to the next part of the build.

It always gets me PO'd when vendors don't ship quickly. But the fact is that many many places ship within 2 business days, which if you think about it is reasonable enough. I've fired off emails when I haven't got a shipping notice by the second business day. lol.
FCPU & PPCs ship about the fastest of any of the water cooling vendors I've dealt with, as well as Xoxide. Sidewinder took a few days to ship my AP15's out.
Only thing about PPCs is I have to pay 7% Florida tax which is almost offset by the 5.5% discount. But I can usually get stuff in two days, sometimes three depending on the time of day I place the order.

Somehow or another, calling USPS got it done. My 12 feet of Durelene just showed up! I guess after the Ravens overtime (they better win!), I'll try and get everything cut and get it leak tested hopefully tonight once the kiddo is in bed. If I get it done tonight, I'll be sure to post some pics of it with the Mayhems Pastel Mint Green in all it's glory! Now I might finally be able to determine how I want to color the sleeving, as well as what else I might paint white on the mobo/water block area. I'll keep you all posted. thumb.gif
