    TankGuys.com - Be aware coz they S.U.C.K.

    Ordered some hardware from them on Dec10,2010.

    No shipping info or tracking info.

    I emailed them twice, no response back.

    Beware of this BS reseller.

    i have known several people who have had positive experiences with them, they are known to sell specific batches of chips, one of the few places that does that. i have never used them personally though, so idk.

    Im sure they will get back to you, maby there shut for a while.. or even on vacation? Anyways good luck honda = /

    Another thing I find funny is AMD/Intel would snipe any of our Moms on a grocery run if it meant good quarterly results, and you are forever whining about what feser did?

    Their website doesn't contain their contact number. Their "contact us" page is only by email.

    I believe you can get their contact info through Paypal. Go to the transaction you did with them in Paypal and check the details. Maybe something there.

    I've used them in the past but I've noticed a huge downturn in response from the company lately. I sent e few emails a while back on some ram and a couple specific cpus on different occasions and I didn't even get an automated response let alone an email from a human. I wrote these guys off a long time ago.......

    Always had a very good experience with TankGuys.
    Never empower an idiot with a response....

    i had a similar problem, i ordered some naked team group GMH 8layer and got 6 layer with heat spreaders and a broken SPI, but i could never get a response. then they died affter a year an half and i could not get them to answer so i had to pay to ship them to taiwan, even though tankguys was supposed to cover the warranty for them (as team closed their US rma center and made it vendor based)

    most small sites cannot keep up with msrp drops when they have low sales, so they keep the prices were they started and never sell anything until they have to clear it.

    well they refunded my money.

    reason they didn't reply back was they don't check emails...go figure

    zero phone support

    bad experience.
