Do you mean ATX pins? The same tool should work on both male and female pins. However the tool that comes with the Lamptron boxed kit is badly designed and doesn't work with male pins so if you have one of those you need to get another tool.

Sorry to barge in like this but has anyone ever uses white sleeving and like a uv blue sleeving? To be specific it is the stuff from ModDIY

I use the mdpc tool, but it does not seem to work with the tax male pins. Maybe I am doing it wrong....

Any chance you could post a pic of the pins you mean?

If it's the basic PSU ATX pins, like the ones that might go into a GPU, then all I can say is it helped me to push the wire in a little bit, against the tool through the connector. That gave the tool just a tiny bit more room to wedge itself down and really push those little wings in.

its over 3mm thick you have 0 chance of getting that into a connector with sleeve and shrink and would probably struggle shrinkless too.

Why not? I'm not the first one using 16 awg wire, besides I will not use heatshrink

not all 16 awg is the same, some have thin insulation i.e. lutro0s custom wire is 2.1mm thick and even the non custom stuff on his store is only 2.3mm compared to the 3.2mm of the wire you posted. I practised sleeving earlier on some wire that had an outer diameter of around 1.7-1.8mm measured with a micrometre, that was shrinkless and went in fairly easy but it filled up the entire "hole" that it went into and I could see how fatter wire would be more of a struggle. Personally I would go with something thinner myself but I have very minimal sleeving experience.
Big Elf and Lutro0 like this.

Can someone tell me if sleeving a non-modular PSU will void the warranty?

Lets say I don't want to open it but just sleeve the last 8-10 inches of it. For this I will be removing the original braided sleeve.

??? ? ? ?⌨️??? ???

You only void the warranty if you open it up Im pretty sure so you should be fine.

I am modding my Coolermaster HAF 912+ to fit in a water cooling loop for my gpu and cpu while making the aesthetics better, in my opinion.
