    I've had great service from OCUK and learnt so much about performance PC building on these forums, thanks very much for that

    Wow, that’s a shock!

    Worked hard, built a successful business and reaped the rewards for way too short a time.

    RIP Mr Proudfoot and my deepest sympathies to your family and friends.

    Without this place I wouldn't have met my amazing wife or many of my "online turned real life" friends.

    Such a shame, at least his legacy will continue with us for as long OcUK are trading.
