Are there any good instructional videos anyone knows of I can watch?
Can I just use any old crimper, or do I need to make sure it has a certain size groove in it? What size do I need for a 3 pin fan connector? (Looked at a crimper online and it had sizes on it including 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2.5, 4, and 6) What tool would you guys recommend or $20 or less? What size wires are used for fan wires? Where do I buy the parts? I need the pins and the connectors. I'm plugging the fans into a Rheosmart 6, which uses the small 3 pin connectors so I need that kind.... what ever they're called.
I found these:
FrozenCPU 3-pin Female Fan Connector - Black
3-Pin Power Supply Connector Pins Set
FrozenCPU 3-pin Male Shielded Fan Connector - Black
FrozenCPU ConnectRight 3-Pin Male Shielded Fan Connector Pins - Set of 3
(Is there a certain place or way I'm supposed to cut those pins off their metal strip, or do I just snip them off where the metal strip starts?)
Unfortunately they're only sold individually at Frozen CPU, without a discount if you buy a lot and there's no packs of them. Charging nearly 4x more just because something is black instead of white is a rip off. Keep in mind I'll be buying a bunch of these parts because I also intend to make extension cords and replace any white connections with black (that are visible unless I can hide them), so its going to add up to a lot if someone is charging me prices like that. I don't like being ripped off and I don't like encouraging it. Is there a place that offers packs of 3 pin female and shielded connectors in black? They need to be BLACK. Went to Sidewinder, but they only sell white and I can't even find them on Newegg. Any suggestions?
