Before we step through the double doors into the back, at the back of aisle 6 is a doorway leading to the Mod shop. Frozen does a lot more mod work and pre-installation than I realized, but the stack of aluminum cutouts just out of the first picture from case window mods speaks for itself.
We finally step through the double doors to the backroom where we find all the tubing, which does take up a lot of space for something that sells for only a couple dollars per foot. Straight back and to the right is TFC Central with gallons of fluid and a slew of radiators, I thought the lab collection of radiators was impressive but there is just a ton of cooling power waiting to dissipate heat.
For some reason I did not take a photo of the stairs up to the mezzanine above tubing, but I did get a shot from top of the stairs. Hidden away on the mezzanine is the cache of sleeving spools and back wall lined with power supplies.
There you have it, a front door to loading dock photo tour of Frozen CPU. I have to admit, I spent a lot of time wandering through the aisles. Checking each bin and just soaking in just how many parts were stacked on the shelves, and I do apologize to those of you who end up with the fondled parts. And no, I did not break any factory seals. For me, the trip was to try to capture the shop and see how the daily grind went down. For six hours, I was on site, snapping photos, listening but not listening to phone calls (there were many phone calls) and just generally getting in the way. The picking table was by far the most interesting spot to watch, and I understand why the Boss Man has a sliding window in his office directly towards the pick table.
Yes, I was like a kid in a candy store the entire time, but having the opportunity to experience what goes on behind the scenes when you click submit on the order was a thrill to do. It goes without saying, but a big thank you to Frozen CPU for giving us the opportunity to hang out for several hours and snap photos to share.
