I've given them a few shots since the resurrection with no issues. Don't forget you 6% if its still working.
At that point, they should've just started a new name.

Regardless, it's a hard pass for me and I'll recommend others to hard pass as well and go shop at ModMyMods.

Ehh, I've ordered from them multiple times since the whole mess started and I never had problems with my orders. I'm not saying that there weren't issues but you have to keep in mind the nature of complaints and bandwagon hopping on the internet. I would imagine that the vast majority of the people that spoke of the horrors of ordering from FCPU never had issues personally, they were just repeating something they heard on the internet.

Well, I've heard stories in-person from ex-employees and yeah, I won't buy there even if I need to pay more elsewhere.

I got few things worth around $600US few weeks ago, literally the next day was here by my doors steps, from them to Canada Ontario I was very impressed.
Everyone deserves second chance.

Disclaimer: I did business with FCPU back around 2004-2006 (possibly even as early as 2002) and never had issues with them during that time. I've also seen the same images of the results of the so-called meltdown that a lot of others have seen, as well as the anecdotal evidence of what went on. I wouldn't be against ordering from them today, especially if they had something I needed and it wasn't readily available via the places I've shopped these past few years.

What follows is merely an fyi for everyone's benefit:

That said, on the face of things (meaning what's available via the Internet), Lori seems like a nice person. According to what I've found on the net though, she's been with FCPU as the CFO from 2004-2014, and since 2017 owns both Liquid Assets Bookkeeping, LLC (incorporated as an LLC per NYS), as well as Liquid Cooling (which operates the FCPU web site; note the lack of any incorporation). That info was gleaned by way of her LinkedIn profile.

The BBB also currently lists her as the Principal (as CFO) for FCPU, through the business is not BBB accredited. It does currently have an A+ BBB rating.

Lastly, NYS does not currently recognize "Liquid Cooling" as a corporate entity, though it could be registered in Monroe County as a DBA (Doing Business As), which I didn't bother to check. OTOH, per current NYS records as of yesterday, Mark Friga is still CEO of FCPU.

If Lori is now the owner of FCPU, it might behoove her to get that spelled out in the official records, which could help put the entire episode of what happened in the past at FCPU to bed.

Same Liquid Cooling that’s on Amazon I take it.

Side note: Titan Rig and PPCS have been great as third and first party sellers on Amazon in my experience. Their default arrival dates probably deter a lot of people but I always get stuff directly from them way before the estimated date.

Didn't they screw a bunch of people from here over before? Ain't nobody got time for that.

They're on the same page as LOLSkater as far as I'm concerned.

On par with Sdumper is not a good place to be.

what part of its not the same owners as before do you not understand. I ordered from them recently without any issue. they have quite a bit of old stock of parts that are hard to find as well.
