rooftop cargo box (skybox) on stock crossbars

I just got a Yakima Skybox 16. I understand our stock (2012) crossbars load limit is 100 lb. Since the skybox it almost 50 lbs. that leave me only 50lb for my stuff.
Is anyone have the similar rooftop cargo box on stock crossbar ? how much (the most) weight did ever put it in the box?
Is 100lb limit is the crossbar or the roof rail?
thanks

I easily put 70-80 in my Thule which weighs about 45 lbs....I wouldn't worry about going up to a total of about 150
