    I've recently purchased a prebuild very similar to this with BPC and I've posted this on the last few deals just because I believe it's important. This'll be the last time.

    The turnaround time on my order was close to a month, which was understandable given the amount of orders they had. Took another week through AusPost to arrive. Once I received it and opened the case, I immediately noticed that not only did they fit the system with a 600w PSU instead of a 650w, they also gave me a RTX 3060 instead of the 3060TI. I had to get it back to them almost an hour away (which I was only able to do because a family member has a travel permit) and then had to specifically request them to express ship it back to me. Called them on a Tuesday evening, they made out like they'd just sent it off (they forgot) and I received it first thing Wednesday morning. From there, the spare HDD I ordered with it wasn't plugged into the power, the copy of Windows wasn't activated and the cable management behind the closed panel was pretty awful.

    If I didn't know what to look for, I wouldn't have noticed that a few hundred dollars of product wasn't in my order. In terms of rectifying their mistake, they did virtually nothing. Not even an apology. I had to instigate everything with them in order to fix the issues they created.

    All I'll say is when you receive yours, check every box and every part inside to make sure it's what you purchased. One error I can understand and I want to assume this is all a mistake, but to undercut me on two important components of my build with the insane run around is seriously bordering on suspect.

      Really appreciate the testimony. Was genuinely considering but will now look elsewhere. Thanks mate.

      I'm with you on that one. I told them that the motherboard didn't have the header required for the USB-C port. They assured me that it would have, so when I received the build guess what? The case's USB-C cable was cable tied out of view and no USB-C header on motherboard. When I followed up they said they had misunderstood and offered a solution which they never followed through with.

      Not to mention that all the case fans and the front AIO was set to exhaust. No intake whatsoever.

      • +2

        My case also had no fans built into the front, but I think that was the case itself and not BPC. Ended up swiping three from my old tower.

        • +2

          Or they simply took them out to be resold. My case comes with 2 fans from the manufacturer but they were taking a fan out and not giving them to people. They ended up leaving that 2nd one in my build by mistake.

      Thanks for sharing. Not sure why you would + this deal though.

      • Visibility.

        • Which is why you should neg vote.

            @TheOneWhoKnocks: Fair enough, I'm used to Reddit's upvote system so I guess I carried it across here. Appreciate the info on how it works.

            • +4

              @Novacore: Appreciate you sharing the experience. They definitely handled it really badly. Pretty dodgy…

    • Good heads up for people interested - but I'm kinda confused as to why you're still upvoting?

      • wow i never knew we could see if people upvoted or not

        • I just meant for the supposed 'deal'

        • +3

          Yeah I never noticed the + or - icon next to the OP comment post, learn something everyday.

          • @Novacore: negs require a comment and a good reason, pozs do not. All about making more sales in the end.

    • +1

      that's very doge of them.

    • +2

      I'd have been absolutely ropeable about the situation. They knew exactly what they were doing and substituted lower value parts hoping you wouldn't notice and when called out couldn't give a rats arse. Would love to know the reps side of the story @budgetpc

    • +1

      Thanks for the heads-up. I was considering buying from them since they have some pretty good deals, but I'll steer clear.

    • +1

      I used to build PC's. It's not rocket science. Why are most businesses just building plain shit… It takes no more than 15 mins per build and another 15 mins to install a pre loaded OS and activate the key…. I just don't get it…

      • +1

        Everytime I spoke to BPC, they said they've got on average 80-100 builds happening. I imagine they'd also take their time to avoid these kind of mistakes and I'm hoping that I'm just an unlucky sod that copped bad luck from them.

        • Could just be the low overheads/margins of the prebuilders, had issues with TF as well just nowhere near as bad and was part of the reason I chose a local over interstate (wrong case, wrong GPU box, tell you to leave a comment for certain parts but was ignored).

    • +1

      that sounds concerning and not the first time i've seen this comment on BPC deals, if this is true you really should neg for visibility as a lot of people don't read comments

      and I hope the rep is here to see this as this is the quickest way to destroy your business

      • Yeah didn't get the voting system until literally this post.

    • +2

      wow, I'd be livid if they tried to scam me with a RTX 3060 instead of the 3060TI.

      • +1

        Look it genuinely could have been a mistake, it's just a very costly mistake to make. I only noticed because of the box they shipped with it, because nowhere on the actual GPU is it obvious that it's not a TI.

    Your turn Techfast

  • -1

    That motherboard is yuck for that cpu. what a shame. this is why I hate prebuilds.

  • -1

    This build has a few mismatched item. With power limiter off, 10700KF can consumer well over 160W power, which overwhelm the cooler; motherboard is very basic, and only support 2933mHz RAM anyway, and cannot overclock 10700KF, which is a waste for K series CPU.
    May as well get a Eagle OC from Techfast for $1088, 11400 + B560m + RAM from shopping express' deal, since 11400 is more than enough for gaming, and has higher single core performance, then reuse as many parts from your old PC, building PC is really easy these days.
    These deal is for getting rid off old stock before new CPU hits the shelf.

    • +1

      Overclock itself it is a waste of time and power. K version is few MHz better than non K out of box so this comment is wrong.

  • +1

    above comments are very concerning. any reputable pre build company out there?

    • yep theyre called the verge big company

      Buying parts and build it itself is fun and cheap, most importantly u can make sure the parts are good match to each other

  • +4

    I received my krakenpower macho build from BPC tech last week and there were no issues. They dispatched within the 2 weeks as advertised however it took auspost two weeks to make the delivery which is not bpc techs fault. All the parts inside matched what was advertised and honestly the price was pretty good for a guaranteed evga 3080 ftw3. The price has gone up $100 since I bought and it looks like they no longer guarantee an EVGA gpu which sucks too but I still think its good value. I feel like you shouldn't make your purchasing decision based off a few bad reviews. Hardly anyone leaves a positive review when everything is going right however when something goes wrong, that's when people feel more inclined to leave a negative review. I've done this many many times as its the only way to get the company to act. Having said that, this wasn't necessary with BPC tech as everything was perfect.

    • Like I've said numerous times, I'm probably just unlucky. It's just how "unlucky" I seem to be that kinda makes this whole thing a little fishy.

      If they're actually mistakes, then fair enough.
