So I bought 4 PCIe x16 Flexible Extender Cables w/ Molex from their site for a total of $125.
I paid for the fastest shipping option which was another $30 as I needed them asap.
Totalled back to GBP was around £98, expensive for 4 riser cables when you think about it but hey, support the bitcoin economy I thought.

They have been stuck in UK customs office all freaking week and they are demanding I pay an extra £35 for import duty and VAT... What a piss take.

It's not Cablesaurus's fault per say, though it would have been nice of them to mark the package as a gift, its our god dam robbing government, they have to have their share of every fucking penny in this country.
So here I am, 10 days later and still no riser cables, waiting for customs to re deliver my package which isn't going to be sent out until at least Monday/Tuesday if I'm lucky.

So yeah, if you are thinking of importing from USA -> UK, always be careful on duty and import and if I were you, I would suggest choosing the cheapest shipping method as UK customs charge you 20% VAT on the shipping costs! (20% VAT on shipping costs!? How the fuck this is legal I don't know)

I had this with some fpga's, but using "standard" shipping. Parcelforce left a card with a ref number & website, I paid at the site that evening, & the parcel was delivered the next morning! Surprisingly easy & efficient.
