Looking at hard line liquid cooling? We ship those via freight, secured down on their own pallet. We can even custom build your system it's own shipping crate if you'd like.
If your order is a bulk purchase or you elect one of our many customization options (custom painting, case and computer component modifications, custom wiring, mining configurations, liquid and other non-standard cooling solutions, installation of custom software and operating systems such as Linux and overclocking of system components) it will require additional time, particularly when combined with each other.
