Keep it up, man....

Oh don't get me wrong, I will figure this out and make and sleeve my own cables but right now this is causing so much frustration that I want to make some progress and move foward so I will do this so that I take the pressure off of me.

Ahh. Someone who gets me. tongue.gif


My next worry is filling, priming, and leak testing the loop! blinksmiley.gif

I hear that - I had the bright idea of using one of the Corsair sleeved cable sets for my AX1200 and just 'resleeving' a few select wires as accents in a different color. I can't figure out for the life of me how they made them but my molex pin tool is useless. I even tried the two mini-paperclip method... which works fine on every power supply I've ever tried it on... no luck. The pins won't even come out! So I'm in the same boat as you... I'll do it all with the cables I have now, sleeving only things that aren't already sleeved, and then mess with a completely custom set when everything is up an running.

The upside to doing it that way - not only can you be using your computer while bored to tears with tediously sleeving 60+ wires (in my case, probably more like 400 in yours!) - but you can be much more precise in measuring perfect lengths for each of the cable sets! Then you can pretend that you meant to do it that way all along! biggrin.gif

Can anyone help me with these pins?



I know the top pins are fan female pins



It is the bottom ones I can not figure out what they are for??
post #865 of 4498
They are for fans. For the female fan connectors.

You ordered them, didn't you look at what you ordered beforehand?

Yes but it had been so long since i ordered them and i also got the top pins that are female for fans also.

So they are 2 different pins for female fan connectors ok. Thanks

No there are not. There is only one pin for fans, the male end of a fan connector looks like this: http://www.coldzero.eu/172-226-thickbox_leoelec/3-pin-fan-red.jpg

The female version consists of a pin and a connector: http://www.coldzero.eu/57-78-thickbox_leoelec/3-pin-fan-red.jpg + http://www.coldzero.eu/33-159-thickbox_leoelec/atx-pci-e-male-pins-50-pack.jpg

thanks for this information but I think they may be 2 different type of female connectors.

I have been Using the below 2 items and they work good. I know the picture of the pins is not very good but the male end goes into the end of it.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100


I will try and take some better pictures in the morning and post them.

Really hard to tell from those pics but both look like female fan pins. They are the only pins I know of that have the "spring" style tip. There are at least two types that I know of: one type, the better ones, are joined at the bottom of the pin on the reel strip. The other type joins with others on the reel strip higher up the pin and have to have the little "wings" cut off before they can be used. The only place I ever saw sell those was FTW PC.

I think what you are doing is trying to get too much done at once. Learning new things like crimping and sleeving takes patience and for a lot of people is not easy to learn. It certainly wasn't for me at first. But with practice you will get to the point where it's second nature. I know.....you have to get to that point, and that involves patience and lots of practice.
Take things in small bites and finish them. wink.gif
