I have looked at some of the threads for sleeving specifically and seen that Nils' stuff is pretty shiny. The pros of MDPC are starting to out way the cons now. And vice versa for Paracord.
I especially like the thought of MDPC-X sleeving being more rigid.
Again I'm sorry if I used a negative context. Hopefully no harm no foul.
No one really took it that way, I am sure Chris was just trying to help by giving both sides of the equation when it comes to sleeving. Keep having fun with the rig though, that is all that matters! I hope you make it into your dream machine.

Yeah there is definitely a scarcity of Bitspower white fittings. Wish they would do the rotaries in white.....NO! I can't afford to replace all my fittings!
I did order some of the white fill/passthrough fittings. Just couldn't resist......the Alphacool ones I have are functional, of course, but the Bitspower ones just look better. But for me that goes with all their fittings, I think they look better than most stuff out there. You can make a loop with what's available at PPC-s & frozen but I really like compression rotaries for looks and for minimum flow reduction. I don't use hard 90's anywhere in my rigs except drains. I know Chris does but he's got like a hundred pumps.
Tell me about it. I did notice rotaries though, and looks like if I do order through Bitspower directly now, my order is going to be bigger than I thought. Time to empty the wallet! On a side note, I may end up ordering a pedestal, as the more I look into ordering, the more I am going to run out of room! Thoughts? How much did you like working with the pedestal Mandrix? I am contemplating putting in a 3rd GTX 680 Hydro, so I might "need" the extra rad room for more overheard to OC with 3-Way SLI.

Either way both will make your PC look great!
Enlighten you did my friend! Nice to see you pop in here again.

Of course not! Just wanted to throw my two cents in. I ordered sleeving from lots of different companies when I was starting...and chose MDPC-X after seeing them all and playing with them all. Order a sample...you'll see why people here like it so much.
are always more than appreciated around here, Chris.
Off topic: Hopefully I will be dabbling in some sleeving this weekend if I can fit in some time between prepping for my finals. If not, mid next week I am done with school, and go focus big time on the build! (Outside of family and holiday requirements, of course)
I want everyone's thoughts on something I have been discussing with Jim over at CaseLabs. I contemplated just getting my order done with the interior frame as white, but having all the exterior panels in matte black. Thoughts? I am thinking it might look quite nice, and would tie in nicely with my Green/Black/White them (It might even require a little less painting on my fans
). Let me know what you all think! Edited by Addiction - 12/7/12 at 8:12am
