Do you mind saying how much you paid for it shipped in Canadian? I just paid $147.50 shipped @ Aquatuning.us for the acetal + EN block plus the single slot adapter. Supposedly they will be reciving stock on Jan 23rd. And hopefully my block will ship shortly afterwards.

About a year ago, I paid about 40 USD to have a few items shipped to states. Contact then with want, they gave me an estimate, but you still have to check for local fees.

I paid 103 CAD + shipping for the order (30 CAD 2 day express)

Didn't have to pay any tax at the door or anything. Was sent DHL express.

Lucky you, I had to pay COD to DHL for my block, also from EK. Total was $127.13 (on cc statement) and $27 for taxes.

Got the copper + acetal though, didn't want to deal with the whole nickel thing. Great block but haven't really pushed my card much yet.

That's with VAT.

So far running 1275/1700 with 1.25v, around 40c gaming.

Nice looking block! Now if only Aquacomputer came out with a nickel plated version...

BTW, I don't think anybody has used 56K in like 10 years lol.
