You need a multimeter and check each wire, you might have broken a connection somewhere when you depinned

i know i did on one for sure, if one of the molex pins is broken will it just not work?

one side of the molex pin bent, one of the two prongs thats used to secure it, would that be the problem? frown.gif

I wouldn't have thought a Molex would stop the PC from booting unless it introduces an electrical short. I'd grab a multimeter then check the 24 pin and 8 pin first

this sucks frown.gif not sure if i should spend $20-30 on a multimeter to check out the current 24/8pin or just buy a new stock 24/8pin and give up sleeving

that molex pin prong was literally the only thing that "broke"
steam is blowing out of my head, spent 6hours doing a bunch of the wires frown.gif

Try stripping the PC back to the bare components first if you don't have a multimeter spare. Plug in the 24, 8 and one SATA for an HDD (PCIe too if you don't have onboard VGA) and see if it boots. Maybe you can narrow it down that way.

Unfortunately, if you have introduced a break in one wire on something like the 24 pin, it will be virtually impossible to identify it without a multimeter

If you're referring to those pins (the ones circled) then I can't see that causing an issue. I bent a few of those when cutting my Molex string to-length. I simply bent them back and they worked fine.

Can you try booting up without that molex connector in use? Or do you have a spare connector to use if the connector in question is for your pump(s)?

going to try this frown.gif i only sleeved the 24pin and 8 pin unfortunately, im on a computer that i wont be able to do work tomorrow my weeks going to go downhill

im going to try and get a multimeter tomorrow from the store i guess, so ill need to identify the bad wire and replace it basically? frown.gif

murphys law owned me mad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gif

i just wish i knew what i did, nothing broke bent or got messed up except that one prong from the molex pin, is it possible to have heated the paracord a bit too much and the plastic wire connected to the molex pin died or am i going crazy?

well mine bent and broke off, i dont have a spare one its on the 24pin from the part that connects to motherboard frown.gif

tried with the other 8pin didn't boot, still shows power to motherboard. im assuming now the problem is definitely in the 24pin atx frown.gif wish i had a multimeter lying around

so what's left, i check every pin to find the one without power then i'll need to completely replace that wire? frown.gif i'm going to look online, might be cheaper for me to buy the stock psu cables again and just try to sell off the sleeved to someone who can afford to diagnose & fix frown.gif
