I was fed up and trust me, I was frustrating and angry! Eclispe SG who promised to bring in my dream Chieftec casing did not bring them in. At first, they said end of Nov, then Christmas well, new year eve and new year day and 2003 is here! They don’t response to my e-mails, private message or thread via Hardwarezone’s forum website. I even posted in Superpet’s forum to see if I can get help there but I guess it’s beyond them to help me.

Ordering online

After much surfing, I found out from Chieftec’s site that they do have this casing for sale online and is able to ship it to Singapore. The casing cost US$62.00 but the shipping will cost US$230.00!!!

I went searching dissatisfied and found Xoxide who is selling it too and at a better price in terms of shipping charges! I waited no longer and ordered…All there is to do now is wait…one week for the order to be ready and shipped and another 2-3 weeks for the casing to arrive.

A call came in the morning while I was in office, my casing is here but there’s just one problem. NO ONE IS AT HOME TO RECEIVE IT! arghhhh!!! Well, not so bad, it was transferred to the Post Office near my home and I picked it up after work. So here is it!

It’s lighter compared to the old HEC casing and not as sturdy in feeling but it’ll do me! kekeke
