The ones I use for combs? They come off. The ones screwed to the motherboard stay.

Though it did work just fine for quite a while, until I was messing around with wiring up CCFL's and forgot to unplug it once hahaha That was my last non-modular PSU ever.

I was actually going to do that with my 700 watt and then I thought better of it. lol I thought for sure if I did that something would happen and cause me problems than I cared to have.

You can actually wire up CCFL's to run directly off the psu without the inverter? Not quite sure if I'm following you correctly on that.

Here are a few pics of the sleeving I did for my 700 watt psu. I probably could have shrink tubed them closer to the connector,but it might have made it harder to put the pins in the connector itself.

How thick is the metal? I wouldn't use anything less than 1.5mm aluminum. It will bend and likely not work. Drill a hole on each side. It only takes like 5 seconds to drill a hole and another 5 seconds to throw a screw and nut in. tongue.gif

It's some thin steel, I'm definitely going to break out the aluminum and screws today, just didn't have time last night and saw the steel and clamps on my work bench...

It you want the cable to be straight the yes. Every 1:1 power supply will.

Question for Lutro0, or anyone else who has ordered his replacement die for the MDPC crimper...

When I was just using the MDPC crimper, I was having the problem that many others faced of breaking off the wings of molex pins because the die was not milled quite enough. I ordered the replacement hoping it would fix the problem. However, as I began using it, I noticed that the new die was not crimping the terminal wings all the way down. Here is a picture of what I'm talking about:



On the right is the wire I tried crimping with the replacement die. As you can see the wings are just laying on top of the wire as opposed to cutting into it. On the left is a wire crimped with the original die. I tried crimping some pins on Lutro0's custom 22awg wire, thinking the fan wire was perhaps narrower than usual. I got the same result. I proceeded to try a molex pin on 18awg wire, and the new die again failed to crimp the terminal all the way down.

Long story short... I think my die has been milled too much. Am I doing something wrong or has anyone else had this issue?
