The motherboard and CPU finally arrived over a month after my initial purchase.

This whole process took well over a month and I am not happy with NCIX, their shipping and the amount of time it takes them to sort out problem.
Initial purchase made on Nov 25,2010.
Arrived on Dec 1,2010.
Shipped back on Dec 3,2010.
I did not hear from them until Dec 23,2010 when I contacted them.
and I finally got the RMA back on Jan 4,2011

So Order on Nov 25,2010 and get a system on Jan 4,2011.

I guess I was really unlucky because NCIX tested RAM + CPU + M/B and it was determined that the CPU and RAM were both bad.

Thanks everybody !

Keep in mind too, that any retailer is going to be swamped over the Christmas season. Not looking to excuse ncix, but I wouldn't blame them either when trying to deal with an RMA in December.

I ordered stuff from newegg and Mem Exp from their Boxing Day sales (around Dec 28/29), and it took ages for the stuff to arrive. With Jan 1st falling on a Saturday, it delayed shipping an extra day by making Monday the stat.
