UPDATE: Stock on Intel Server Board S3420GPRX I/O Shield

We have found out that D&H USA has stock on the Intel Server Board S3420GPRX I/O shield (AGPRXIO).

Unfortunately D&H Canada is not allowed to sell Intel product into Canada at this time, so we were not able to get stock through their Canadian distribution point while the US distribution point will not drop-ship into Canada.

Fellow MVP Russ Grover suggested we talk to Applied Computer Online Services (Link to the I/O Shield part). They show available stock in their online ordering system.

But, because we are in Canada we ended up needing to call in to work out the product cost and the cost to ship up to Canada. In the end they were very helpful and their price was reasonable for each unit including shipping.

Note that we specifically requested FedEx as the courier since UPS charges an arm and a leg for their customs clearing services (we subsequently contracted the FedEx folks due to ongoing problems with UPS).
