Corsair power supply sleeving troubles

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So i have a corsair rm850 that I have been sleeving all weekend and i am having the worst time ever with getting the pins out of the connectors. Now im going to assume that this has to be a corsair connector issue as i take my pin removal tool and use it on an old xfx psu i have and it works flawlessly . Anyone know if this is common or am i just missing something ?

Make sure you are pushing the wire in before using the pin remover tool and pulling out.

What condition are the wings of the pins in when you take them out?

Havent taken these particular ones out but ive sleeved my 24 pin and cpu 8 pin and they are depressed when removed then i pull them back out before re inserring them into the connectors. Im pretty sure this is going to work by just switching the wire on the cpu 8 pin

You may have to adjust the prongs on the pin remover tool to squeeze the wings in more.
