Sleeving - Problem with a wire

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Guys i have a problem with my Sleeving. Maybe its fast solved (i hope so)
I´m to 90% done with sleeving my Corsair HX750. Pulling out the wires are very easy now for me but I have a problem with one single wire.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I sleeved it with a heatshrink but decided to sleeve my Hx with the plastic method. There is now this green wire which is thinner than the other ones and i simply cannot pull it out. There is a little rest of the heatshrink in the atx connector. I dont know what exactly the problem causes. Is it the heatshrink or the wire itself?
With some tools i can move the wire in the connector and it seems like it doesn´t stuck in it after all. I dont want to damage it or crimp it because its not modular and i havn´t any crimper tools.

Tools and sleeve are from mdpc.

This one green wire. You sleeved it before, but now the pin is stuck in the connector. You don't want to damage it. You have good practice now with removing the other pins, but this one doesn't come out. That's correct?

I suggest: take some needle-nose pliers, the smallest you have. Use the pliers to hold the wire, and push the pin deeper into the socket. Wiggle it around. Are you able to make it loose like this? If so, try removing again with extractor tool. If you can't make it loose, then indeed it seems like there is melted heatshrink stuck inside.

Sorry for my late answer. Had alot stress the last days.
Your summary is correct.
I tried to push the pin deeper into the socket. It worked but in the end i wasn´t able to pull that pin out.
Unfortunately... it broke mad.gif. Seems like the Coirsair cables dont like a lot pressure.

Now the problem is even bigger. I have to crimp it and save it if i can. Is it possible to crimp 1 or 2 cables without a crimp tool?
Or is it better to buy min. a cheap one to have success?

If you are just doing one and are nible with your fingers, take a needle nose pliers and crimp the wires with the needle nose, this is not by any means the best way but it will save you from buying a crimper. (crimp the small crimps then the large crimps and try to strip the wire @ 3mm so some of it goes into the pin at the other end. this will help you keep it into place. I will take a photo quick.

here is the photos, I added this to the faq:

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.

But you may have better sucess with getting the cheap 20 dollar hans long crimper from perf pc or frozen pc.

If i remember right that green wire might be a smaller diameter so make sure to melt the sleeve on that cable so it does not pullout again.

look up heatshrinkless plastic type on the video guides.
