So I got a FTWPC sample kit today buy...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I CANNOT get the molex tool to work. I can't seem to get a single cable out of the housing. I'm sure I'm doing it right as I've watched plenty of videos and read tutorials about how to do it but none of my cables will budge

Any ideas what I may be missing? The PSU is an Antec-TP650 (though I doubt that matters unless Antec makes the housing units one way).

Well I managed to get them out by yanking the hell out of it, but they won't go back in

Are you talking about the IDE (round) or ATX (square) pins? They both use different tools.

The round pins typically come out fairly easily, but the square pins can be very tight and this varies from one PSU to the next. I've found that the best way to remove the square pins is to push the pin into the housing, then insert the tool pushing it tightly into the connector, then tug out the pin pulling up on it a bit (away from the leg with the wire crimped on).
