I highly doubt it will be here by Monday unfortunately
. Once its dispatched, it will take anywhere between 3-5 days. Once it reaches Ireland, it will be delivered to your door by anpost. HWVS policy regarding RMA's is quite good usually. You can print out a prepaid UPS label and the turn around time is usually less than 2 weeks.
I did a bit more investigating into the values I was getting with that hard drive tester. Although I never once got a HDD related crash error, it looks like my sata controller on my motherboard is fecked up. I was getting some crashes when I was installing a game (mass effect 2) when I used my sata 3 port off the games DVD. When I used the sata 2 ports, no crashes occurred so It kind of would make sense if it is my SB causing the issues (also, when I used another HDD, I was getting a few errors transferring data using the same sata port)
Is there a possibility that this could be caused by the power supply I am using (super flower amazon 550w)? Everything seems to be stable, minus a few random crashes in bad company 2 (buzz noise crash) and even then, the system never powered off unexpectedly. I am going to be getting a new motherboard tomorrow so I guess I can compare the values.
