I won't describe mine as it's not as good as Lutro0s but one I'm comfortable with. You're better learning the best practice way of doing it.

How do I remove a pin from a sata power connector? Do they work like fan connectors? Push a pin and shove it out?

I have sata power connectors that have pins in them with a wire going in and coming out of each pin to the next one.

Want to ask before I break something.

It it the 'punch down' type or the 90º Connector?

The punch down type works by cutting the insulation when you push the wire in and can be removed by lifting the wire being careful not to pull the pin out.
Edit: You need to prise the little cap off the top first.

The wire on the 90º connector is removed by very gently lifting the little latch which holds each pin in. I must be clumsy as I quite often break these latches.

The best way is to lift the little plastic tab you see and pull the cable out, they're probably the most easy pins to get out.
I sleeved my SATA power cables with the SATA sleeving I bought, sleeving them individually is also possible but I was a bit too lazy for that.

I just finished my 4+4 pin, now on to the 24-pin. My SATA's, SATA power cables, fans, a Molex and the two PCI-E cables are already done.

At first I thought you had sleeved your 24 pin rainbowed, then I read what you wrote biggrin.gif.

Anyway, with the sata cables with the plastic tab, they are just out and in right? No crimping needed?

edit: just realized I am going to need to crimp anyway since I am moving the connectors along the wires.

Nah when you take em out you'll see that two wires go into one pin (and on the end on of the pin are 3 little pins).
That's why I didn't want to sleeve them individually, don't have a crimping tool.
So I just taped them off and used SATA sleeving to do the 4 wires together, less hassle thumb.gif

EDIT:

Just finished off the whole PSU, now testing if everything still works haha

Thanks I'll check it out.

Was wondering about that, thanks.

For you guys sleeving your front panel wiring, have you run into problems when you take apart the double wire connectors like the reset, hdd led, etc? Removing the pins resulted in "ripping" the plastic connector on mine to the point where I ordered some extensions to replace them, although they were still usuable. I thought they would be simple like fan connectors but at least on the Switch were troublesome. Easy enough to get out, I guess, but like I said the plastic connector ripped along the wire passage. Hmm maybe use something thinner and longer than the 4-prong fan connector tool to slide the pins out?

I haven't done mine, but I plan to. However, I wasn't going to sleeve those individual wires. I was just going to sleeve then in one piece of sleeve. The sleeve should fit right over the connector even.

Do you mean the connectors that plug into the mobo for the power, reset etc.

700

If so you need to lift the little latch on the connector and slide the wire out.

Edit: it's also the same method of removal for the connectors for internal USB/Firewire/Audio
