According to the phone conversation I had with them after two weeks of trying to get ahold of them, one spot on the block did not plate so it prolly looks like dog arse. If I get another block that is plated I will order the 775 mount (if you can) and move it over to my HTPC that it will be less noticeable.

I am building a MurderMod with the SSD mount and light panel with Charles_H and nothing but perfection is going into that. I really tried my best to explain that to the plateshop but I guess they had wax in their ears...

You will like it guys. Germans did really good job on those HKs. It was bit a blind date, but went better then expected.

Just tracked my package and it Canada Post has still not even began to ship from Oakville. So far this week they have been late on my shipment that was suppoesd to arrive today, lost the contents of one package and sent the box wrapped in a "we are sorry, your package has been damaged" bag, and now behind on another shipment. Starting to get ultra pissed at this joke of a service.

If I get screwed out of another Heatkiller I will go insane.

CP is really slow to update. I noticed that on my last shipment from Daz. The next time it updates it will probably show out for delivery. And mine shows still in Oakville as well, but with an eta of 10/30.

Unfortunately Canada post tracking is very approximate vehicle. Most of time it get updated properly, but in others they skip everything to the end - "delivered". If anything package was insured.

Still its sux...........................
