Question about sleeving from MDPC-X
 
This question is directed to people who have purchased sleeving from MDPC-X and have had it shipped to Canada. From your experience, are there any duties for fees upon receipt? I plan on purchasing about 150-250 EUROs worth of sleeving and just wanted to know if there are any fees that I will have to pay upon receipt. Don't wanna get a surprise fee of 40 or so.

I just recieced 220 euros worth a couple of weeks ago , 8 days and no extra charges to central B. C.

Thanks for the reply. Good to know that I won't have to factor that into my purchase.

Nope, there are no additional fees. Got mine in four days (Saskatchewan)

I had to pay a nominal fee (~$40) for a $300euro order... then again, I received 3 deliveries that day so I might be confused. Either way, I was shocked that it only took 5 days for my order to arrive... Nils runs a tight ship, and his product is top notch.

Only took 5 days for it to arrive in Calgary. Extremely fast shipping.

Depends how much each person bought. I bought enough to do two PSUs.

COuld I ask how much it cost you to do 2 psu's? Save me the trouble of figuring it out myself. Sleeved PSUs look so so damn gorgeous. ANy pics of your build / sleeving?

It is simple math really. Take the number of wires you are using. 24 + 8 + 6 + 8 + 5 + 5 + 4 = 60. Then multiply by how many feet the cables are. Unless you cut them yourself or extend them, most power supply cables are 2 feet. So generally you need at least 120 feet plus waste. Which I would buy at least 10 feet extra. This is assuming of course you are sleeving all the way back to the power supply, which a lot of people do not. Then add a few meters of heatshrink. And shipping. You are looking at about 55 euros. Which is about $75CAD. This is also assuming you don't need to sleeve your sata cables.
