- Motherboard pins, for connecting power/reset/speaker/ cables to the motherboard. Also used for motherboard USB and Firewire connectors.
Molex no longer make the pins for the Molex type 4 pin connector.
The best male and female ones I have used and particularly for crimping double wires are those branded by ModSmart. Although I don't have a part number for them the female pins are stamped 'HWT' on the rear wings and the males pins 'HST'
Does the 24pin female housing connect to itself if you have the male and female pins, or do you need a male connector with male pins?
The fans pins are 08-50-0114 (bag) or 08-50-0113(reel). I know for sure that FTWPC has 08-50-0113 since they asked for it on their FB wall, and it's the cheaper of the two.
The Molex crimp tool is not more expensive than the MDPC tool. In fact, it's much cheaper if you buy it from Newark ($38), or get it used (saw it used like new $30). And based off the one guide where it was used, it looks like it has acceptable, and/or preferred Molex crimps according to their Quality Crimp Handbook. As of now, I'm set on getting the Molex crimper unless I can find a good and cheap ratcheting tool. The MDPC crimper is $70-$75 for me, assuming I have to pay Level 3 shipping which Is what heard is needed for the tool. So it's $20-$40 cheaper for the Molex tool, and I get a better crimp (according to Molex).
Do you have the connector for that?
Which connector are your referring to? A pic would help.
Here is the Sata power connector (not inline): 67582-0000
And Pins: 67581-0000 (Type 1) or 67581-0010 (Type 2)
I don't see the difference between type 1 and 2, but type 1 is hard to find.

Does anyone think the other Molex extraction tools are worth it? They include the 4pin periphal, and 3/4pin fan. The best explaination of how they work would be in the data sheet. The 4pin may be a bit confusing, but I seems like it has a spring loaded mechanism that ejects the pin from the connector once pushed all the way down.
I've got a pretty big list of connectors, pins, and tools, but some of them would need to be checked out and confirmed. Only a few of the things I actually found, and I don't have the links to where i found alot them.
