I can't believe they charged him 200$+ to ship this thing. Its only 38 pounds. They must charge Size>weight. BUT STILL that seems so obscene. I would be calling corporate UPS to verify that price if it were me.

OK, so for now i'm transplanting everything, adding a third pump, and third 480, using white tubing, and setting up hybrid sli links. Two in parallel one in serial.

Yeah, size is definitely a factor. I get robbed when I ship out 900D windows, that only weight 6lbs with packaging.

Is still say 200 is too much, but in not surprised.

What are the dimensions of the box?

I don't have the demenssions, but I would guess it is around the same size as the 900D box, just slightly taller. CaseLabs must have a contract with their shipping carriers, as they only charge 60-70$ to ship.

Yep, companies usually have an arrangement. That's why is so cheap. Newegg charged me 40bucks to ship my 900D. So, who swallowed the shipping costs? you or the seller?

IIRC Caselabs ships their cases so that you have to assemble them yourself.

Caselabs STH10 box

I'm going to have to have a Caselabs case next. There is just no way around it. It's inevitable.

That seems to be SOP, though I think you can request flat pack or pre-assembled. Iv'e seen a few people get them pre-built in the CL club.

He has swallowed it for now, but I feel bad, so we are going to work out a deal on some fittings, + i'll throw him a bit extra.

i don't think prices would have been much different. I think CL flat packs to reduce liability

Dimensions play a big role with non standard packages. I read the entire Caselabs TX10 thread where Jim said he will try out flat packing a case for the first time to reduce shipping costs. I guess it worked out since he ships flat for all cases now.

The main issue is A.) He lives in a very rural part of Long Island and B.) Used UPS.

His location likely dictates the price more than anything else. I bet it would have only been 25-30 less to flat pack it. I plugged the dimensions of the 900d box + weight into my area and UPS still wanted 120$.
