I saw the pile of metal in one of your earlier posts. I come from a welding family and could make one to survive the apocalypse, but I wouldn't look as good as retail lol

what do you use to remove pins from connector ?
is the phobya sleeving toolkit worth it ?

Well actualy I dident have to remove the pins because I was already running the wires at a custom length so I was able to put the sleveing on from the spliced end (inside the PSU) instead of removing the pins from the atx connectors. I was originalay gonna do it that way but the tool I orderd was garbage(Koolance) and too much of a pain to use so I suggest spending the money on a good tool and going the cheap way on the sleeveing. If you get the sleeveing from the right person on ebay its the same quality. Its just marked up by the retail companies when the fact is its dirt chep to make and to get directly from the Overseas company that makes them. Long story short get a quality tool and go cheap on the sleeveing! thumb.gif

is it possible to un-solder the wire instead of splicing ? i m quiet good at soldering , but i need a iron , i don't fancy spliced wire in my system ,.....
my problem is that i only have some cheap molex extension for fan for training and i can pull the pins by hand in these crap , i dunno on what else i could try.
i know form experience that about half of the tool for electronic are more or less useless and you're better of with scalpel or scotch tape that 's why i want to try before buying any tools.

if you make some wires from scratch for modular psu , which seems like the easiest way in the end , you still need a cramping tool for the pins , right ?

Been there done that and to be honest with you you are better off splicing, maybe even tinning the wires with solder and Soldering the spliced wires to it that way. The area that connects the multiple wires(Ground(-), POS(+12,3,5) are all messy and when you go to re-solder them its a pain because the terminal area of the PCB is so large its hard to attach them all before the first application begins to dry(thus it cracks and you don't achieve a good connection!) basically a two hour headache appose to a 12min splice! thumb.gif But there is a old trick on splicing wires and ensuring good current and a connection that is not easily separated, I will try to produce a sketch with the steps in a little and post it. I dident make them from scratch I just extended the existing wires to make up for the length needed, too easy the PET still covered it and it was easy to hide! thumb.gif

Make sure you have 2 pieces of heat shrink already cut and one one each wire as well as the PET already ran before spliceing....

i think i will do a modular psu from scratch it seems to be the easiest and the best.
you can make a new set easily and the psu can be used for other project or swaped with another.
spliced wire would be a pain to change later on and i don't want to condamn a psu to a particular build.

if i had to do the spliced method, i think i would use some kind of very small pin from connector, tape and shrink wrap,
i used to do that to secure wire for gold electroplating on some rotating spatial connector , if it was good enough for space stuff i guess it will be ok for my pc , i know they can handle the juice ok too .
you can solder the wire inside a small tube made for splice crimping 2 wire too.

i can't do that method , i have been taught not too , and would have been killed during formation for doing that , not that it s not good , but it didn't look pro enough for them and i have kept the standard since .


the only extra modular psu i have for now is a Flowerpower with some nice connector but not suited for easy sleeving so i will wait a little bit .




I could try to turn my corsair gs 800 into a modular but i 'm pretty sure there is a space issue on the panel were the connectors goes.

thanks for your answers

This may not be as efficient, but you could always use a crimpable butt splice. It's not as strong, but realistically what kind of physical pull is really going to happen on the inside of the PSU after mounting?
