I don't think the HST thing will have any effect. CP collects BOTH taxes IIRC, not just the GST. Same cost, just a different name for the tax.
I noticed that too. The only place that I have been charged with is Frozen. Sidewinders, PPCs, Petras, and jabtech always come tax free.

cant blame a company for border fees.

I live in NS, we have the HST. When I get dinged by USPS for cross border shipping, it's only the GST (6%) + custom fees + CanadaPost $5 fee.. we dont get dinged for the HST.
And I've seen government workers at the CCRA - most of them you wouldn't trust to sharpen a pencil let alone protect and inspect international mail at the border.

Yes but P-PCs puts a low value on the box, so it passes by customs easily without owing anything. FrozenCPU put the true value though. Honest? Sure, but doesn't benefit me

Here's some pictures, not the greatest pictures, but whatever. My desk is a total mess right now, so my typical area can't be used, so there's less lighting over here.













I'll get it on the card this weekend hopefully, along with my SR-1 360 radiator.

One question for you guys though, the instructions say to "glue" the stand-offs to the block with thermal grease?! How the hell do you do that? Grease isn't adhesive by any means. Sounds like it would just create a huge mess all over the place. Don't know why they couldn't just come pre-attached, would make things so much easier.
