    Aww, must suck to pay for something that doesn't work... I am lucky myself that all my transactions are fine, I should be more cautious able new sellers. I nearly bought the 5850 off him.

    same here - i was gonna buy his XFX one off him (the first one he put up for sale) luckily though i didnt have the money for it at that time, and by the time i did get the money it had already been sold else where im guessing - as he didnt really leave an explination for closing his FS thread. his 5850 twin frozor II looks good though, and i think its brand new from OCuK. I dont think hes even had that for 1 month. (but i could be wrong)

    He seemed pretty confused about what he wanted to do with his PC - one moment he wanted to move onto a new GPU then the next thing i hear is hes thinking about getting another 5850. so i asked him why is he selling a 5850 (the XFX one) when he could pair them up with the other 5850 (the twin frozor II ??) he was asking for in his WTB thread for even more performance.

    I never got an answer off him anyway. but its not so suspicious that he wanted to sell his XFX

    It probably had no voltage tweak feature and he wanted a version that DID have voltage tweaking but that would be a bit of a no brainer unless he has really really bad case of OCD or is just a super perfectionist and anal about his hardware, in which case - why buy the XFX in the first place? unless that was a mistake?? and whats the point of upgrading more or less to the same card but just for an extra 200-250mhz on the clock when there are cards like the 6870/6950 out there on the market???

    It just doesnt make sense. and judging by what happend to moonpig it could be that the XFX was also dodgy.

    ------

    this is pure speculation of course. as Mr.Watercoold isnt here to explain/defend his actions

    Guys, he's talking to me again through TPU. Not to suggest anything, but it was after i got a very nice fella on ChilledPC to PM him on Aria for me.

    I'll let you all know how this unfolds. His original PS3 thread claimed 1 months warranty with him.

    Few PM's back and forth (he claimed he didn't get my earlier ones explaining the issue) so i copy and pasted them. Last PM received at 7:40pm, nothing since.

    I hope your not right.

    The worst thing about this is that my Brother actually bought this (just used my TPU account for PMs).

    that is bullshit. this is not E-MAIL. PM's dont just get LOST somewhere in the system.

    motherfucker just didnt want to own up to it. I wish you the best of luck getting some money back if not all of it. because this is starting to sound worser and worse (so is being drunk since 12 in the afternoon for that matter - I was supposed to save this lot for the evening.)

    you could speak to tatty and tatty could pass it on to Krej who will monitor his IP and ban him from TPU etc etc but that still wont get your bothers money back. and at the moment, i dont think watercooled really gives a shit tbh. hes got your money. he dont need to give a monkies what happends to the PS3 - so long as hes got your money.

    Speak to Mussels and get him to chuck it up on the despute thread.

    If he was legit he wouldnt of ran off or claimed he didnt get your PMs - Im not too sure if mods can see what pms people have recieved, if he was legit he would have been a bit more willing to help (generally) I know it sounds like im shit stirring, and im not - its just my own opinion.

    I'l shut up now before people start saying im trolling (but we of the UK-clubhouse have to look out for each other)

    Damn right we do! Obviously we have to give this guy the benefit of our doubt but he hasn't really given MoonPig much reassurance. Still, I respect where you're coming from Freedom & I'm sure Pig does as well.

    Find a safeway thats closing down - they start off doing a 10 pack of strongbow for £6.09 but it does get cheaper when it comes closer to their shop closing date (which is when i went in to get my 3 boxs)
