Well you can certainly use 1:1 extensions. Otherwise there is no way to avoid the double wires, you can't just change the way the cables are plugged to the connectors if that's what you're asking.

Can I Crimp A Terminal With A Needle Nose Pliers? 
- What if I only need to crimp one or two wires because of a mistake or if I want to not use my crimper and use a needle nose on the heavier terminals? Click to Expand (Click to show)

If you accidentally pull out the wire from the terminal and you dont want to buy a crimper you can use a needle nose pliers to crimp the terminals without having to buy a crimper. However if you need to do more then 4 or so then I would seriously look into getting a crimper as they will be stronger and way less time consuming to do.

But the process is simple:


Make sure to have a needle nose pliers and a wire stripper that you can strip the wire to 3mm or so. Strip the wire and proceed to the next step.


Make sure that the extra wire length is inside of the pin - this will give it a better connection and hold it into place for you a bit.


Crimp down the one side carefully.


Then fold over the other side and clamp it down, make sure to get it right on so it does not overhang.


Fold over the upper wing as close to the other, I even bend the open on over a little so I can round it over a bit more.


Try to round it over as much as possible - dont just clamp it down otherwise you will end up with a ovelapping metal that will not insert properly. These crimps are not the strongest but will work in an emergency.


And thats it! Like I said I dont recommend doing this with allot of crimps but if you are in a bind it will work in a pinch, this also work with other pins as well.

Important to mention this. If the crimp is not completely airtight, dust and moisture can collect inside the wings, and there is a risk of arcing. You can avoid this by squeezing really very very very hard on the pliers to ensure maximum contact between all strands of the wire and the wings of the pin.

http://lutro0-customs.com/products/custom-sleeved-12-24pin-extension

read the description on the tools page, one of the crimpers in the test bed is a model number off from the one on ebay. I have both but the difference is sizes and both have the same issues.

Okay so I'm going to sleeve my Corsair AX 1200 when I get it. What cables are double? Also, I'm going to sleeve Blue and white from a tech flex Sleeving kit from PPCs. Is that any good? I'll be buying an original molex tool....

Stay away from sleeving kits as most if not all that I have tried had bad sleeving and or wrong ammounts.

The techflex kit comes with PET original sleeving which will not cover the wire totally.

do you carry any blue or white Sleeving? This will be my first time Sleeving and does the AX1200 have any double cables?
