The heatshrink is there! Thank you so much for that. I also found the wire, but I having a real problem with all this wire gauge junk. I have read alot of web sites that say you only need 18ga wire for any wire in your computer, if you look at it realistically, you find that you need a wire that will take 12v of power max.

I have found the following web sites that outline the power connectors.

ATX 24 pin pin out
Wire gauge diagram of 20 pin ATX power (which is just a 24 pin minus 1x 3.3v, 5v, 12v, and ground)

All in all, it seems that 18ga wire is more than enough to do anything that is in a computer, I think just like the old speaker boxes of the past, "the bigger the better" is in effect when it comes to Ultra's X4 cabling.

I have all the cables done up and sleeved, if they don't work, I will just make them into SATA, Molex, PCIe, etc. and use the stock 24 pin until I can do something right.

One question on the pins I have, they are perfect for a 18ga wire, are there ATX pins that are made for 16ga wire instead?

Just an update for no reason. After cleaning/dusting out my case I was too lazy to zip tie my H50 rad back on the front. (Since I had to cut the zip ties to take the rad out to clean it.) So I just let is sit on my DvD drive... looks fine to me .-.

18 gauge wire is more than high enough rated to carry the rated volts/amps that most if not all PSU's put out.

I'm looking to change out the front intake, rear exhaust and top exhaust fans in my 932. What fan's should I use to replace them? I'm looking more for performance instead of flash. Also I'd like them to be more on the quiet side and not as loud as the 3 YL D12SH-12s that I have on my cpu and bottom intake.

EDIT: Btw, awesome setup VincentXXX.

LOL, sometimes to get something done right, you must do it yourself.

Other than that, I find it impossible to get "some" of the pins out of the 24 pin connector. I have tried the Sunbeam tool, the flattened paperclip, the stables, and even ground down butter knives to fit in the slot. The cables WILL NOT pull out.

So I decided to do it myself, the only real additional cost is the wire (at $0.35/ft) and the ends ($0.99 per 4). Either way you go you have the sleeving cost and the heat shrink.

But, at the end of the road, I am doing it because it is less hassle for me to do it this way than fight with a pin for 10 minutes trying to get it out of a connector. It takes me 10 seconds to crimp and end on and 2 minutes to sleeve and heat shrink it.
