I was not aware of this. I've got two that are too short for my dual case setup, perhaps I can lengthen them temporarily to make it easier to work on her. Although I'll prob. replace those two regardless as they had 'form shaped' to my previous single case setup and now don't lay as flat as I'd like hehehe

Hello guys, I need some of your help.

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=34_804_1030&products_id=37141

I Just bought one of that 24pin cable for my AX1200i PSU and I'm trying to remove the pins to re-sleeve some of the cords and I need to disassemble the cable to pass the cords individually on the acrylic on my build but the pin just don't come out, I'm using this tool http://mnpctech.com/pc-sleeving-psu-power-supply-atx-tool-white-black-pet-red-green-blue/pc-sleeve-tool.html but the pin just dont come out. I tryed on another PSUs and its so easy to pull out the pin but with this corsair they seem stuck.

Any tips?

Thanks

Sadly it's not a very good ATX Pin Remover and is likely to break fairly quickly.


Make sure that you push the wire back up into the housing then press down the tool to make sure the tangs are depressed. Also pull the wire straight when removing it and you may need to 'wiggle' the wire first. You may need more force than you think to remove the pin but there's also a risk of the wire coming out of the pin.

WiSKs wonderful picture shows the pin inside the connector



and as he says 'you need to push first and wiggle to free the wings. Only then will the extractor tool be able to depress the wings properly, enough to free the pin.'

Thank you so much. I ordered a MDPC pin remover, you think it's better than MNPC Tech's ?

It just happened with me: " but there's also a risk of the wire coming out of the pin." how could I remve the pin without the wire?

You can buy Lutro0s Stuck Pin Remover or alternatively use a Bobby Pin/Hair Grip and trim it to make your own pin remover. Stick the cut down Bobby Pin down each side of the pin using pliers to grip it to depress each 'tang' on the pin and the pin should easily push out.
