Lovely Site, Massive Product Range

Shipping and Products often expensive!

In over 6 years of intimate experience with online shops, I've come to demand a lot. As retailer after retailer constantly better themselves, customers demand not only basic service, but want to feel looked after, in a similar way we all expect from traditional shopping. Let's take a look:...

“Worst Service Ever”

published 15/09/2008

There wasnt any

I would never deal with them again!

The Worst site and customer service i have ever experienced. I have always used Ebuyer.co.uk for all my computing needs. A year ago, i thought i would try overclockers as some of the parts were cheaper than on Ebuyer. That proved a costly mistake. The motherboard i received was already a returned...

I ordered an "Ultima Vortex" GX2 PC from Overclockers a month and a half ago. I wouldn't use this company again under any circumstances. As a caveat to this review, some of the issues may have stemmed from the courier company City Link. However, if this is the company Overclockers insist on...

“USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!”

published 08/10/2008

Cheap, huge stock list.

Illegal return policy

Good company until something goes wrong. I used them for a while with no problems, I live nearby and so would use "the shop" to purchase items. I purchased a new Motherboard, RAM and a Graphics card. After building everything the system crashed every time I tried to install XP. I checked all...

“Overclockers - Under-rated”

published 29/04/2004

Great range, great service

Not for novice PC users like me

Upon some recommendations from Rabid, I went to overclockers.co.uk and purchased some goods which he had suggested to me. Overclockers sells computer components. They don't do complete machines but sell pretty much everything else. From motherboards to fans, you can pretty much find anything here...

I have recently upgraded my computer. What was once a top of the range speed machine, had sadly become a little dated and needed a bit of a boost. Surfing the Internet I stumbled across overclockers.co.uk and it immediately caught my attention. The name ‘overclockers’ immediately suggest a site...

“Tweakers paradise.”

Pre-tested hardware, sells top quality products.

Not for the nervous

I happened upon this UK computer hardware online shop, by following a link from Hexus.net, a hardware info website, that deals mainly with overclocking your hardware. Shops like this have done a roaring trade in the US, Canada and Australia and I was very pleased to find this one based here in...
