I have ordered lots of things from the states over the years using USPS, lately it always seems to be about 30 dollars for anything substantial. Kinda sucks. I was also looking at ordering some tubing from sidewinder, kinda sucks when its 30 dollars for shipping. Frozen cpu and performance pcs is about the same.
NEVER Ship First Class from anyone. It costs a little more for the next option but it's worth it to ensure you're going to receive your package. I even pay the insurance(PPCs') now cause USPS lost a package and me an PPCs' went at it. To their credit they eventually sent a replacement package with the upgraded shipping. But it only took one issue to corrupt an otherwise seamless process.

do any of those offer black or white tubing?
does the leeching affect blocks? if the tube is all black i dont particularly care what the inside looks like unless its damaging equipment.
I'm not sure if any of those manufacturers offer Black or White Tubing. There are very few that do however. Feser, PrimoChill... after that I don't know. Plasticizing can occur in any tubing where plasticizer is used. As far as I know it doesn't affect the blocks much if at all. Although I have read through here a couple people have had issues.
I have the White PC tubing and haven't had an issue with Plasticizer. Although the interior of my tubing is greenish in flavor but that's due to the untreated Copper Block I'm running on my CPU. I'm glad I have solid tubing for that reason.
