Update.... Well I got an RMA number, but I went ahead and called Newegg. Turns out they will file a claim with UPS because it did appear that the product was damaged during shipping.

Lol so I am stoked that I get 2 6800GS, since they are going to send me a replacement and I get to keep this one that is repairable! This is the only way I'd do SLI other than if I was rich, 1 free card lol!

So I am starting to put everything together, but I am having a hard time installing my TT Big Typhoon since my mobo's backplate is plastic, and their alternative instalation doesn't work. I don't know what to do here guys, can you please help me out? The metal backplate they provide, well the holes line up but it doesn't sit flat on the mobo because of various circuitry that is underneath the CPU on the backside.

Also, the mobo didn't come with any mounting hardware, like the standoffs and screws and paper washers. Where can I get some of these?

Here is TT online install:

and here is what came with the HS:

The one with the HS appears to be a newer revision.
