    I want to buy a gpu from over clockers is there anyway to get free shipping other than joining their forum and making posts etc?

    Maybe a face book offer or something.

    4chan is nicer at times ;) - a lot of opinionated users , a lot have some good information but also a selection of rabid trolls.

    ironically one user who has a lot of disposable income and a pro NVidia fan , bought an R9 whilst waiting for the latest titan - and actually liked it.

    Full to the brim with fanboys who engage in the same pathetic arguments day after day. Mods say they will crack down but don't.

    If you liked the Spectrum VS C64 arguments (or earlier or later models of computing kit) then knock yourself out.

    Also if you hate AMD you'll fit it really well with all of the plastic people who pretend that they're not biased, yet will post a "AMD are doomed" thread on a heartbeat.

    Seriously? just avoid the place like the clap. I used to post there and got banned and lost my free shipping and so on and it sucked so I just pretty much remain quiet now.

    Yup Overcockers is the worst forum ever bunch of pseudo Arse holes the lot of them if they don't like what you post it's ban and delete policy but not before calling you a spastic etc.

    IMO they was what was wrong with the shop too before it got taken over if you complained about the shop ripping you off it was ban and delete.

    I actually got perma banned twice? lol for complaining about a friends kid getting ripped of by them.

    I usually do but the GPU I was looking at is 40 quid cheaper, 30 cheaper if you factor in the postage cost.

    Bizarrely Overclockers also have the ASRock X99 ITX board about £50 cheaper than everywhere else too.

    Also, Overclockers sell some stuff that Scan don't carry for whatever reason - e.g. Parvum and Raijintek.

    Post in the gaming forum/gaming bargains thread. Best way imo, avoids most of the conflict. Stay away from anything hardware related, especially GPUs.

    Forum is just like any other, some good users some idiots.

    Free postage offer is great from there though and they use DPD which is a awesome courier :)

    Scan may do a price match if you ring them. I have had success in the past.

    I use the ocuk forums and its ok, its only the graphics section fanboys get there knickers in a twist, I only have to see a thread that starts with amd or NVidia and within 10 posts the whole thread turns to crap but ignore them and there are some pretty good members that are quite knowledgeable and helpful,
