Estimated Build Time
***Please be aware due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the 2021 stock shortages orders are taking longer than normal and there is the potential for delays on specific components. Please take the time to read both of these information pages before placing your order***
We appreciate everyone wants their PC as soon as possible but to ensure your PC is perfect it does take time to build and thoroughly test. Each System we create is subject to this estimated build and test time. As standard it is 5 - 10 Working days (Monday - Friday excluding bank Holidays) with potential days added on (see below). We must highlight these timescales are all estimated as it is impossible to predict how stock supply will be and if we run into problems with say testing a particular component once the system is assembled.
In short, when you place your order and payment is accepted and the order is processed the countdown begins and we begin by firstly allocating your parts. Once allocated and the build time is available, your system is physically built using our strict and through standards.
Once the system is built it is then put into testing where all of the components are stress tested beyond everyday use. Once we know the hardware is as it should be we then set about installing software, drivers, updates and tweaks. The PC can then be optimised and any extras such as an overclock can be tested. This rigorous testing phase typically takes around 1 - 4 working days during a working week but can take longer (see below) and is included in the overall estimated build and test time. Once we are happy that the system is up to scratch we will then email you requesting to book a convenient delivery date.
Please be aware due to the nature of the following components the testing time and thus the whole build time is extended by a certain amount;
16GB RAM + 1 Working Day
32GB RAM + 3 Working days
64GB RAM + 7 Working days
128GB RAM + 15 Working days
Overclocking + 1 Working Day
Fully Watercooled systems + 1 Working Day
Custom case Paint + 5 to 15 Working Days
This is because these components simply take longer to properly test and normal testing times are not sufficient. Often when fulfilling orders with large amounts of RAM we will often pre test the RAM in a test bench prior to installing it to a system which can significantly reduce testing times. Under normal circumstances nearly all of our systems are completed well within those estimated build and test times.
If you cannot wait to get your hands on your new UK Gaming Computers rig then we have introduced a priority service, super rush service and a pre built range that are ready to ship now.
Standard 5 - 10 Working Days *POTENTIAL COVID & STOCK DELAYS SEE TOP BANNER*
Your PC is built and tested within an estimated 5 to 10 working days plus extra time detailed at the top of this page such as extra RAM and overclocks.
Priority 3 - 5 Working Days *POTENTIAL DELAY DUE TO COVID-19*
With this option your PC is fast tracked through our build and testing phase. This does not mean it is rushed as it will gstill get the same love and care as all of our computers.
Your PC is built and tested within an estimated 3 to 5 working days plus extra time detailed at the top of this mage such as extra RAM and overclocks.
Super Rush Job **CALL OR EMAIL BEFORE ORDERING**
Sometimes there comes a time where you have to have something as quickly as possible. This service involves building and testing a system as quickly as possible making your system the number one priority here at UKGC. We down tools and concerntrate on this build ensuring it is finished as quickly as possible. We often used pre tested components to speed up the testing phase considerably meaning you can have your very own custom built pc within a day or two. You will need to give us a call before ordering this service to discuss what we can do for you and agree an appropriate timescale plus also find out if we currently have any other super rush jobs on as we only account one of these jobs at a time to ensure the one we do have, is still treated as priority 1. If you don't contact us prior then we will simply get on the job as quickly as possible and let you know when it's finished.
