neurotix I used FrozenCPU a lot in the past, around 2012-2015 era. Remember seeing the photos and everything.

Really hope that guy is doing well and gotten the help he needed.

Glad the company is alive and well, and sending orders again. Back in the day I never had any issues with any of my orders and they arrived quickly enough.

I have ordered from performance ( recently a gpu block and xspc raystorm kit a few yrs back) but their shipping prices get me.
This is the sort of thing that might help Frozencpu get out from under the cloud they'd obviously been dealing with (though it likely won't be a cure all, at least not for some).

I'm about 300 miles from you on the other side of the High Peaks region of the Adirondacks, so if I had to drive there it'd still be reasonably doable.

battlenut I have placed hundreds of dollars of orders for air cooler from them, they have all arrived with no issues. I usually go to Frozen CPU or Xoxide for difficult to find stuff.

You already have it as linked to up thread.

Moose-Tech Over the past year I ordered a few hard to find items from them, most expensive about $40. They had what I needed, or I could wait for it to ship from China.

I had no problems with their orders, even though I knew the history.
However, I did not think they had a good selection of any recent components, it looked like it was mostly old stock when I shopped there.

My go to PC parts vendors are (in this order):
Performance PCs
Titan Rigs
ModMyMods
Amazon
ebay
FrozenCPUs

Please note that PPCS, Titan Rigs and ModMyMods maintain a storefront on Amazon. If you can find it in their regular web store check to see if you can find it on Amazon.
You may get reduced shipping, but will not be able to use any store specific discount codes (Like OCN55).

Please note that PPCS also maintains a clearance storefront on ebay. Mostly discontinued, old stock, open box and used components. Some real good deals in there though.

The only problems i really had with vendors were on ebay, but they were all single sellers, not running an ebay storefront.
Any other store that I had problems with, worked out the issue to my satisfaction (basically replace the part or return my $).

If it's the case, seems like a no brainer to me.

Major correction to what I shared earlier about their Corporate registration in NYS:

No, the Department of State does not keep track of your corporate officers, directors or shareholders.The New York Department of State considers records of officers as internal records maintained by the entity.
Sourced via the same link noted above. My interpretation of that is that names of corporate officers (e.g., the Principal, CEO, etc.). can't be changed in NYS records. By that, I mean that Mark Friga's name will always remain in the NYS records for FrozenCPU regardless of who currently owns the company.

Fluxmaven I was browsing Facebook and noticed they just put up a poll asking if they should change their name... So they might be trying to start fresh... I think they should just update the info on who is actually running it and keep the FrozenCPU name. I haven't had issues with any of the orders I have placed within the last year, but I still go to PPCS or ModMyMods if I'm placing a large order.
