Ah....looking at that last pic you posted, that's definitely not a fan pin. It is a female pin, but for what I don't know unless it's a minifit jr.

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

Thank you for the good advise and this is about what I have decided already. I am having a lot of fun testing the fans and rads but also want to get some done on the computer. So I think for now I will use the wires that came with the PSU and then learn how to make my own after it is running and I can do things with it. Also I am ashamed to admit this but I think I should of listened to everyone and used 18 or at the most 16 AWG wire for the atx pins. the 12 works fine for the molex connectors but not this for sure. I have made a lot of 4 pin molex to use in my testing to have extensions for and no problems with this. I also have made a lot of 3 pin male and female connectors with no problems. I am using 22 for the fans. Also I am using the pins I showed you on the top and they work good with my crimped male fan connectors..

See Above biggrin.gif and actually they work very well in the female connectors and the male pins i have fit in them very well both outside the connectors and once i have made them they work very well so I don't know for sure

Any opinions?? Trying to decide to leave black or make this white?? I also think this is a good idea to do with the Drive bays!!! I am so smart biggrin.gif



I am thinking I need to cover these with vinyl so that they are white also.



What do you think of my idea with this drive bay??







See will not be able to see from the front because I dont want to and I will be using SSD's in this and will not need to change but a good way to put them I think??? This one holds 6 and I have another one that holds 4. so this will cover my drives for the main PC.

Also I had to take wife today to have oral surgery and then play Mr Mom so no work on PC... and Now I have some Kracken that Bart made me buy!!! I am drinking cheers.gif



So it is all Barts Fault!!!

You know what they say Scott: happy wife, happy life. smile.gif I'm cutting back and I'm single! Well, not recently since I'm on vacation until June 3rd, but I've almost stopped drinking booze due to sleeping problems. Except for vacation of course. smile.gif

I'm off to bed, but white gets my vote. Unless you're going for a total 2-tone piano/penguin theme, white makes more sense to me. Just my $0.02CDN!
