Guess I'll email them and see if they can courier one out.

***EDIT AGAIN***

So it turns out that factorydirect is out of stock everywhere.

I've been reading up on the infamous RRoD's and the fix (replacing the clamps on the GPU/CPU) seems fairly simple...has anyone tried it?
Seems from a quick google search that it seems to work ok.

Learning towards picking up an RRoD'd one and trying to fix it.
Don't suppose anyone here has one they're willing to part with for cheap?
I've been a victim of the RRoD. I easily fixed it by swapping out the X-clamps though. It was actually really easy, and has been stable since.
