Are Phobya pin extractor kits reliable enough?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I've been looking into buying some supplies for sleeving lately and these just popped up on PC Case Gear:
Link

I was just wondering if anyone has had experience with these and if they're reliable enough or not. As in, are they tough enough to last a reasonable while? I've heard of extractor kits like these breaking within a day or two of being used so I wanted to ask before I ordered anything.

Thanks!

The ATX extractor in that kit is not really that good, the pins are very fat so you will likely break them while trying to put them down the ATX contact.

Get the MDPC-X ATX extractor instead, it costs more but it's worth it, i promise you.

That's kinda what I was expecting to hear, it's mainly the shipping costs of MDPC that I was worried about but I guess this way if I order from them I can go for the proper stuff.
Cheers for your help.

Did a quick search on StaticICE using that model number, and couldn't find anything in Australia. I'm happy enough ordering from Nils though, so everything's cool.

The phobia kits are rebranded kits that are made for a few different sellers, and they all are defective on the atx remover.

The original molex extracter: http://lutro0-customs.com/products/original-molex-extractor
The round pin extractor: http://lutro0-customs.com/products/round-4pin-extractor

And an exacto knife are the best way to go and will last you for a long time.
