I bought the tool so I could make my power cables the exact length. I'm planning on eventually building in an acrylic case. There is no way to hide extra length in there!!
On a side note, does anyone have a suggestion on a nice power supply? I'm looking for something understated and well built. I don't want a simple plain box, but something that when you see, it's plain that it's high quality... I have an itch to mod!!

If you are sleeving give the cooler master hybrid pro series a look.

How about the new EVGA power supplies. From what I can tell they have no double wires, and for someone like me whose GPU needs dual 8 pins, their PCI-E connectors are 8 Pin and 6 Pin. Now if only they had a 1000w (or around) model. And with a 10 year warranty and their customer service, don't know if it can get better than that.

I'm looking at them now, and I kinda like them...

I don't like the sticker on the side though, or the grab bar in the back... How hard would it be to remove them? Anyone know?

It would probably be pretty easy but would result in a breaking the warranty seal.

I have found that MDPC-X sleeving likes 16 gauge wire for that very tight fit, anything smaller than 18 gauge wire you have to pull hard to get the MDPC-X sleeving tight. This is not the fault of the MDPC-X sleeving, rather it works well with similar sufficiently larger OD wiring.

It's either MDPCX, or nothing.

The MDPC-X crimper is second to none, I have never had a bad crimp so far!

Now that's what I like to see. smile.gif

Yeah I would imagine it would be as simple as opening it up and unscrewing the handle from the inside. Be careful though. I don't know anything about power/electricity but I hold the PSU can hold a good charge.

It wouldn't get installed or plugged in before the handle came off....
It's gonna have to wait a bit though.. I got the g/f coming for a visit, and I can't be in the middle of a project, and be able to pay enough attention to both of them tongue.gif
