Great shots Lowfat! as always......


Is there a specific PSU that you would recommend for a first time sleever? It has to be a top quality PSU I don't want to mess around with lesser models. I have the AX750 but I was told it will be quite hard and may not look as great since it has a bunch of double wires so I am considering getting a new one. I was recommended Silverstone Strider series but I am unsure of the quality of PSU. I would also like to keep my wires as uniform as possible and not have them criss crossing if possible. Thanks!

Oh yeah p.s. Does Nils give tracking numbers? I didn't receive one :P Also the websites states usually 3-4 days. Does this mean they are as fast as Aquatuning shipping?

Siverstone Striders are all I will buy. But I don't use the stock cables so honestly I am not sure how easily they sleeve. They do use capacitors on the cables though, so you'd need to cut them off.

Takes about a week and a half generally for MDPC-X orders.

Thanks LF. I will buy a strider series! and keep my AX750 for backup. Hrmm capacitors on the cables? I dunno I will be doing my own wires also as I want some of them to be substantially longer then the stock cables so that shouldn't be a problem. I ordered a bunch of crimp pins and stuff from MDPC. pretty much a bit of everything. :D

Thanks again!

On a serious note, not sure why people are piping up about Nils and store hours... I placed a huge order and got it within 5 days, the guy runs a top notch shop.

Yeah Nils is great. I like what he stands for in general. Personally I like to support the independent businessman or mom and pop shops as opposed to the big box stores.

Who was complaining about his hours?

He only operates limited hours so he can offer the best service for when he is open. It was quick for me too, unfortunately I'm yet to sleeve anything.. Lowfat those are really nice shots..
Liu Kang good to see you back man.. Sub Zero says hello! :)

Anyone know where I can get a proper type of crimping tool in Canada? THe ones I have seen online at princess auto and home depot and they don't look the same. I don't want to have to order from ppc or mdpc unless I have to.

I highly suggest getting the MDPC-X crimper. The one from PPCS doesn't crimp near as good. I am not sure you'll have much luck finding one in Canada.
