    I ordered mine from a HK based vendor and received it in 6 days. I'm curious as to how long it will take for you guys in Canada.
    I will post as soon as it get here

    It was 12.95 shipping for my Basic Starter Kit. Vancouver to Sydney N.S.

    EDIT: Now it's wait and see who gets theirs first.
    I actually cancelled my order from E14. It's not moving.
    But Cana Kit don't have just the Pi board so I got mine from ebay. Coming from HK. The seller has 100% positive feedback and the unit is in stock. Let's see.

    Let me know if you figure out what the third heat sink is for? I only used one big and one small on my B+.
    One each for the quad-core processor and USB/Ethernet chip on top and one for the 1GB RAM at the bottom of the card.

    I had a feeling you might point that out. That's the same heat sink pack I bought for my B+, before there ever was a 2 B. The B+ doesn't have the RAM on the bottom. Plus, if you put a heat sink on the bottom, it's not going to fit in a case. Look's like you'd need two large and one small, not one large and two small. I used the one big and one of the small from the pack I got, on my B+. Let me know what you actually do with yours when you get them. I just always wondered what the third heat sink was for and never did find anything online showing it.

    Well, the heat sink was just a bonus and I did not take notice of it until you mentioned it. I've never used a heat sink before. I am not sure if I am gonna use them. Maybe I will since I already have them. Yeah, the bottom one might be a problem. We'll see.

    I've seen it mentioned that the heat sinks aren't needed, but people kept asking for them so they made some up. More for look's than actual functionality I guess. I'll likely get another set the next time I order something else. Not really worth it just ordering them by themselves. You can get just single heat sinks for the CPU. Actually, all I need is the double sided sticky thermal pads. I've got a whole box of heat sinks from dead motherboards etc. I could just cut one of the chip-set heat sinks down to size with my dremel tool. Adafruit has the sticky thermal pads or tape or whatever you want to call it, so maybe that's what I'll do. You know if Radio Shack was selling this type of stuff in their stores maybe they wouldn't be bankrupt.

    I am thinking maybe heat sinks are only necessary if you are going to make your raspi work like a server that needs to be working 24/7. Or if you overclock it for specific purposes.

    Okay, mine is shipped now. At least I know it's on the way. Unlike in Element 14, it just keeps saying "Received".

    It can't hurt to use them if you have them. I'll likely buy another set eventually. I bought the first set with some other stuff. I'll be ordering some more Pi related stuff once I get my income tax refund.

    Yes, but it's a different version of W10 and you have to sign up as a developer to get it.
