[Updated] Breaking News: FrozenCPU Shuts Down and is Out of Business?

This may be a shock for some of you (or most), specially fans of FrozenCPU and if you rely on the store for your PC mod supplies. FrozenCPU.com – the “world’s largest selection of PC modification supplies” has recently and unofficially went out of business. This news came from a forum member of overclock.net named WebsterXC. According to him the company became unoperational last week and shuts down for good. All support and warehouse staffs were dismissed. This was further confirmed by a representative from Swiftech. You can read the whole message below.

FrozenCPU Shuts Down for Good?

WebsterXC’s message:

This is not spam, nor is it a joke of any sort. This is a serious matter that I’d like to address that has not been released officially to anyone. Out of respect for privacy I will not be going into detail.

Many people understand that I was a FrozenCPU employee for almost 3 years. I loved the time I spent there, it was not only a fun and enriching experience, but built my work ethic to allow me to become a professional individual through high school. I established unparalleled relationships with my coworkers, many of whom I can consider family. The office staff however, was not the same. Currently I am not employed by, and do not represent FrozenCPU in any way. The owner has struggled a long battle with addiction, and events that unfolded earlier last week have rendered the company unoperational and shut down for good. Physical damage of the warehouse has occurred as well as the dismissal of all support and warehouse staff; the company has no plans of re-establishing themselves.

My initiatives are harmless; I want to protect the community that fostered my love for computers and technology from sending payments or spending money on products that will not come. Some users have already caught on to this fact after their UPS Overnights were not delivered today. Since all staff has been fired, nobody is updating the website to inform the loyal community about the closure, nor has anyone taken steps to shut the website down. I have no sources and no images, and my credibility of this testimony rests on my previous employment with the company (why I nested this thread in “rumors and unconfirmed articles”).

Thanks everyone for your time. Mods, if I have done wrong, please PM me and I’ll fix any issues. Please DO NOT PM me regarding this topic; I have no further information to give.

TL;DR: Do not order from the FrozenCPU marketplace, as they have closed doors and will not be shipping product or answering E-Mails and phones.

This was further confirmed by the following messages:

For those who ordered anything from FrozenCPU recently, don’t expect that your package will arrive. We don’t know what will happen next but as of now, it is strongly advised not to order anything from FrozenCPU until everything clears up. You might be paying for nothing at all. Please do share this article specially to those who are customers of the company.

UPDATE: It’s now official and confirmed. FrozenCPU has shut down operation and will no longer take any orders until further notice. An update was posted on the site dated Feb 15, 2015. See screenshot below.

So there you have it folks. That’s the most official statement we could get for now. It’s clear and confirmed that the site is indeed shut down. We don’t know what will happen to FrozenCPU from this point. It may or may not shut down permanently. But I hope this would just be a temporary problem that will be resolved soon.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!
