That sucks... although the site is still up for me, so guessing they haven't taken it down completely yet or it's just me that have missunderstood the article a bit.

So who was the insider?

...I see, it all makes sense now. While at first e-tailing a wide variety of specialist PC cooling products can seem like a profitable venture, da cheezburgers grind a man down, slowly eating away at margins.




On a slightly more serious note, this is sad news, I bought a few hard to find items from them and they were very efficient and polite to deal with.

FYI that update was from a Swiftech rep (where did you get Frozen PC from and what is it anyway?) and it was since taken back too.

oh man. this was the first place to have noctua industrials that i could find. way before newegg. they're also the only place in america where i can buy aquacomputer. i've never bought from canada before but it looks like thats my only alternative for some of the products they sold. (actually, i just found another reseller but they dont seem to have a few things i want. the search continues)

Really sucks. Never bought anything from them but i would venture onto their site every now and then when i would plan yet another never to happen watercooled build. They literally had everything. Other vendors of this type did not nearly have the amount of selection they did. While their site was little out of date it was easy and more simple to use than newer ones. Everything is exactly where you would expect them to be. Shame really.

Since turning in last night a lot more information has came to light.

Swiftech has retracted their statement and HardOCP have reportedly had contact with the owner, who says the site is not closing.

The article has been updated.

I find it hard to believe a successful site like this going under. There would always be another corporation ready to step in and purchase Frozen CPU. Modding and watercooling is quite lucrative these days. Most do it once in a while but there are many who turn out build after build.

Glad to hear they are still functional. I wouldn't be surprised if another corporation that has money to spare/invest in the site would take it over to expand their business. Sad to hear it's rough times for them.
