post #6401 of 14583
Alright so I just ordered some paracord and I plan on trying some new methods of how to manage the wires after its all done. My idea is to either glue small magnets inside the paracord and then create a metal piece that will go in between all the wires of the 24 pin making them stay uniform through the whole extension.

Would there be any concerns for the small magnets?
Has this been done?
Thoughts?
Comments?
Thanks biggrin.gif

Not sure if I'm completely correct about this.... but, I thought magnets and computers don't go together headscratch.gif

Don't know if magnets would effect the power transmission... but I'd err on the side of caution.

Sorry if this has been mentioned but I can't seem to remove the pins on the 24-pin connector on my Corsair TX650 psu. I've got the special tool to do it but no matter how hard I pull, I tried pushing in then pulling out but still nothing, and it's not just a couple of them, I can't take any of them out. The Molex ones seem to come out easily but this 24-pin is killing me, u guys have any tips or something?

EDIT: Just broke the f-ing tool mad.gif

some PSU's have Ferrite beads on their VGA cables right? Well Ferrite Beads are basically magnets.....
The issue lies in where the magnets are. You would think that HDDs would be really susceptible to magnets, yet they already have High-power Neodymium magnets in them to move the head. pretty sure you would need an insanely strong magnet to affect an HDD.

Most corsair pins are hard to remove due to the pins gripping onto or being dug into the plastic during the manufacturing process. If you have not checked out my mdpc video guide it explains how to grip the wire to get the right leverage to pull those pins out - but of course you need to make sure that tool has the prongs pushed down.

The tool I recommend even if you just had one is the Original Molex Tool - it can be found at frozen-cpu or MDPC

Dont know if its your cam or not, but it looks to be yellowish.

Also: I have made a guide on how to get your order in easily at mdpc.

@Lutro0: The colours are quite accurate in this picture. As you probably noticed the front facing cables in the connectors are yellowish and the others are significantly darker. I wouldn't have thought that the cable-colours would shine through like that. The sleeve looks very dense and when I'm looking very very close to the sleeved cables, there's absolutely no gap where the colour could possibly shine through. Confuses me a bit^^. Maybe the material is too thin after all.

Has anyone got a picture of white mdpc sleeve over white cables? Preferably without heatshrinks biggrin.gif
I might get the 100m package from Nils if it looks very very white.
