How are you removing the cables? Are you using proper tools? It sounds a bit like you are simply trying to pull them out using brute force. If you don't remove the cables from the connector properly, you risk breaking the tabs and not being able to lock them back into place afterwards.
Not quite sure what you mean. Just make sure you connect the cables exactly as they were with the correct colors.
If you have a 6pin VGA but you only need 4 because your GPU only has a 4pin connector, then yes, you wouldn't have to bother about connecting the 2 addtl cables. Just make sure you insulate them well and that they dont touch each other or other wires directly. The same would apply if you have a 8pin connector.

I'm glad you posted and attempt to educate yourself before you start this project. There are many great guides around too, Lutro0's guides are a good place to start.

Try practicing on cables you wont be using first, before you start sleeving cables that you will be utilizing in your rig. This will mitigate the risk of damage to your machine in case you made a mistake somewhere.

Good luck and post pictures when you're done! thumb.gif

It helps if you insert the tool, push the wire up into the connector a bit while holding the tool in and then pull the wire out holding it as straight as possible. Sometimes it does need more force than you'd expect.

8bitG33k - I wouldn't exactly class the Phobya tools as proper tools. The 4 pin molex pin and fan remover are fine the others are rubbish.

I know I've hijacked the OPs thread, however my question is relevant and may also assist the OP.

On the 6+2 pcie connectors the +2 are double wires into the top of the small two wire connector. Can you go 1 to 1 from the PSU to the connector or do you need to keep the double wire for video cards that require an 8 pin?
post #14 of 17
I'm not sure I understand your question but...you can remove the wires for the +2 pin connector if they're not required (obviously just tuck them out of the way on a non-modular PSU in case you need them in future). Note that the wires on the +2 pin are both Ground wires.

eargh im still have great trouble in getting these pins out of the connectors... I wish I knew someone close by who could have a look and tell me if im just doing it wrong or they really are that tough to remove...

ive tried bending the arms of the phobya tool slightly to get a better pinch on the wings, ive tried wiggling it about in the casing and pushing it towards the housing to give the tool better grip but im still having to wrap the wires around my hand and pulling to the point where i get large cable size marks on my fingers and cuts on my thumb from where im leaning on the connector to get it out...

i would opt to get another extractor if i knew that would make the difference.

It's not your tools thats the issue as I have the same set, and yes you will get sore fingers from it. check out a tutorial, im sure Lutro0 does a couple and see if you are doing it right

The problem with the Phobya extractor is that the prongs are too thin and sometimes don't depress the tangs on the pin enough. Someone on here bent the end of the prongs on their extractor inwards slightly which he said helped but you need to be careful as the tool easily breaks.

The best ATX pin extractor is the Molex 11-03-0044 closely followed by the Pulse Modding version which appears to be only available in the UK and needs a slight bit of modding to get it working perfectly.
