post #541 of 1109
All of those ratcheting crimpers you get from computer mod stores are the exact same Chinese special with maybe different plastic handle colors. Some are good and some are bad because of crap quality control, not because of different manufacturers. It's not so much the ratchet that bothers me, it's that crimps need to be done in a straight fashion, and these cheap crimpers just don't offer that. A parallel crimper is the best. I've never once got a good crimp out of the ratcheting PC-mod-site type.

If you like Ramicio I would love to send you one of mine to test out.

The maker I get them from is top notch and have always given me perfect crimps at all times.

Just shoot me a PM and I will get you set up. Not trying to argue with you as I very much agree with 90 percent of what you are saying but I would love to know your honest opinion on it! thumb.gif

I want to sleeve my psu cables, I have the HX 850 and the pci-e cables running to my gpu have a bump thing wrapped in heat shrink about an inch from where the cables plug into the gpu. I hope somebody knows the part Im talking about. What under there and is it okay to cut it off so I can sleeve these cables?

I already have a bunch of crimpers. I've already formed my opinion on the ratcheting type.

Lutro0,

If it will crimp 12 AWG wire I will buy one and do a review on it for you. As i have ordered one from Niles and also brought one home from work going to try and see what is the best???

Let me know and I will get one.

It is most likely a capacitor or a ferrite bead. in either case you can remove them.

Thats fine, was hoping to give you a better informed opinion. But everyone is entitled to their opinion. thumb.gif

I need to purchase some Molex brand pins for a set of cables using standard molex connectors. I've been using Mouser.com for pin-sourcing as they don't have a minimum purchase amount. Could somebody provide me with the Molex part numbers for these male and female pins?

I know Lutro0 carries them in his shop but I am not sure what his minimum order amount is.

Thanks Wisk. That is just what I needed.

Thanks gdubc. Lutro0 carries the pins, but his minimum order is over $30.00. His prices are great, but all I need is pins.
