In the unlikely event you have an issue with your system, we offer e-mail and phone support by our team of experts located right here in our Dallas, Texas USA office, all of whom are friendly geeks and gamers themselves. If we identify any failed components, depending on your comfort level inside of a computer, we will either send you replacement parts and talk you through the installation, or, in a worst case scenario, recall your system and repair it in our lab at absolutely no cost to you for in-warranty repair. Optionally, we offer an onsite warranty where instead of talking you through a repair or recalling the system, we'd send an agent to your home or office to perform the repair for you. Onsite warranty service is available in the United States and Canada. We provide phone and email support for troubleshooting for as long as you own the system, well beyond the warranty period, on every model we sell.

Shipping

In addition to the United States, we ship to Canada, Mexico and all 27 European Union member states as well as Switzerland, New Zealand, and Australia. Our web store is configured to display pricing in US Dollars, Canadian Dollars, British Pounds, Euros, and Australian Dollars for your convenience. Orders are delivered "Duties Paid" and your invoice will include line items for all applicable sales tax and import fees that we collect at the point of sale for your convenience. All our systems are built in and supported from Dallas, TX in the United States. As such, technical support is provided in English and Spanish and availability is limited to the posted times on the Support landing page accessible in the navigation bar at the top, keeping in mind that we are in Central Time USA (GMT -5:00) and we observe Daylight Savings Time during the summer months. Also, a modest "International Support Fee" is added to each order shipping outside the United States and is designed to offset the higher shipping costs we'll incur should there ever be a need to recall your system for repair or ship out replacement parts and recall failed components during the warranty period. This amount varies by region and depends on shipping costs to and from each region. All international orders ship with a universal power adapter at no additional charge.

We invite you to take a leisurely read through our Support Statement written in everyday-speak, not legalese.
