Doesn't matter. Aquatuning uses their own broker so you pay the taxes + fee at the checkout on Aquatuning. You won't have any fees to pay when it arrives at your door.

You may occasionally be hit with UPS brokerage fee's using Aquatuning.us, but they will refund it. I got nailed for $30 on my ~$150 order (because UPS are a bunch of idiots), and it was refunded in about a week.

I'll never use a US retailer if AT.us has the same item. Heck, even comparing against the 'canadian' option, AT.us is usually quite a bit cheaper, especially anything Aquacomputer related.

I've recently purchased from FrozenCPU and I say you MUST, I repeat you MUST, use USPS for shipping, or else UPS will charge you a pretty hefty fee.(they charge A LOT for brokerage and duty).
With USPS, expect to pay the service tax of the item at your door.
I ordered a $130 waterblock from FrozenCPU, got it shipped under USPS Express Mail, and had to pay a fee of about $5. So expect to pay around the GST/PST/HST.

This thread's kinda old, but i thought i'd add in my experience with UPS.

Just last week i had purchased $166 worth of water cooling stuff from performance-pc. With shipping the total was $194. But when it arrived at my door i was stuck with the brokerage fee of $65.

To bad the selection for water cooling products just isn't that good in Canada or i would have been more than willing to buy Canadian.

ordered a few things from frozencpu over the last few years... everytime the charges for shipping and duty seemed way unreasonable and i think the prices a tad high to be honest. i would highly recommend anything other then frozen unless they have a crucial part to your build no one else carries.

use them as a last ditch effort.
