Walmart, hardware stores (Home depot, Lowe's, Menard's, etc.), and auto parts stores are some places you have a large selection of paint.

I looked at some of the krylon paints I saw a Deep Blue, Regal blue that looked close to what I wanted. Any other suggestions on krylon colors that have a royal blue / aquamarine blue hint to it?

One of my power supply cables snapped as I tried to pull it out so now I have to get a crimping tool and new pins and a new female connector since its stuck in the connector >.>.... My case also got scratched up and I do not like how it went through painters tape and got the metal. I want to make it the same style in matte black anyone recommend how to repaint my case back to it? I was thinking sanding, primer, matte black finish paint (FLAT is the same thing?).

performance-pcs.com has the pins (both male and female) and crimping tools. They have connectors but if you put the removal tool back in and use a small flat head screw driver (the precision ones) and pull it out.


If you have a Frys or Microcenter, they may have all these parts. My local Fry's did have the crimping tool and molex and fan pins, but no eps-atx pins (24-pin, 8-pin, pcie pins, etc).

I do not have a microcenter close to me, and frys doesn't exist around me. In terms of crimping tools have you tried a bunch? Does it matter if I get the performance one vs home depot vs mdpc? I think I saw your crimper in another post it was like 20$?

Yeah, its the basic one but its a bit challenging to use. I would recommend the better crimper:

Wermad can you link me to some pictures of the "bite" of the performance PC crimper? I don't wanna buy the mdpc-x one if I don't have to due to the price but since I have to buy more sleeving it might fit into the next order.

Hmmm, don't have any links but its the same crimper tbh. They're all made in China and have the same function. I would just get what ever is cheapest in the end with shipping. I know the FTW uses the same one (not sure if its the same manufacturer but its definitely the same style).

oh...found this that might help:

Anyone know the connector pins in the corsair atx 24 pin? I broke a square one which I assume is the standard Female that I need to recrimp, however for the Corsair HX 1050 theres an arching type pin and I am confused on which pin this is, I assume its the male but I can't seem to find any information about this. The Arching type pin was removed cleaned from another wire on my 24 pin and I need to recrimp it, but I am unsure which pin this is and I do not want to mix and match, unless I know it works.
