I removed my +2 as well, I was going to re-add them but, I wasn't able to get a good enough crimp on 2 wires with my needle nose. I would definitely recommend ordering some extra ATX pins as backup.

For sata cables, depending on the style of cable you may or may not need to recrimp. if they are the 90 degree ones, they are just punch down. For molex you will need to recrimp or solder, it would definitely help to have the proper tools though.

Thanks guys. Ill have to think about something to do with the +2.
As for my sata this is what they look like. Im going to cut my molexs down to just one connector each.
Sorry for the phone pic.

yeah thats the kind you can just pull out and shove back in. Look up "Punch Down" on google, should show you kinda what those connectors are like. Just make sure if you move the connector, you heat shrink or electrical tape the semi-exposed wire that remains. What those connectors do is form a "V", when you shove the wire in, they cut the insulation and make contact around the edge of the wire. something like "\\o/"

Alright thanks for the help.

Just ordered the MDPC sleeve kit and 10 meters of gray
It was only ~3 euro more vs 30 meters of black sleeving and 3 meters of heatshrink because of shipping
post #1005 of 14314
People say MDPC is expensive, but it really isn't! It is only shipping which can be a little expensive. Compare it to somewhere like ChilledPC, and MDPC is actually cheaper per meter and it is quality European-made sleeving which has never been compressed onto a roll, unlike the cheap chinese ChilledPC stuff

Well technically it is expensive. It costs more for slightly less sleeving when compared to TechFlex Clean Cut for us in the US. On top of that, we have to pay quite a bit for shipping. For the total cost (including shipping) of 30m (less than 100 feet of sleeving) from MDPC, we can buy over 200 feet of Techflex Clean Cut (shipped).

The only time it's even slightly worth it for MDPC is if you're wanting colored sleeving. So far, I haven't see any other colored sleeving that can beat MDPC. Now Nathan at Koolertek has some decent colored sleeving but it doesn't match MDPC.

Techflex Clean Cut is not the quality of MDPC though I agree in the US you have more economical options, in the EU though MDPC is the best way to go

While I haven't physically held any piece of MDPC, I can say that Techflex Clean Cut is still great quality sleeving. There's no light leakage through the dense weave of the sleeving so you don't see any of the wires inside. To be honest, the only way I can see the MDPC being better were if the filaments were smaller and it had 4 instead of 3 like the Techflex Clean Cut.

Should be more than enough...100 feet will generally serve you well in the sleeving. You might have more heat shrink than you need but always good to have some left over.
