Pro paint.net skillz here, but this is what it looks like inside the connector.


The wings of the pin are usually digging into the nylon housing. If you pull hard now, then you're just cutting up the nylon more. The trick is to first push the pin a little deeper into the connector (upwards on the pic) so as to free the wings. Wiggle it around a bit. Then insert the molex tool to push the wings flat against the pin. Then it should slide out. Might still need a bit of force, especially if the nylon has become ragged. But you should never need so much that it pulls the wire out of the crimp.

Thank you! This case is a lot of fun to work with and it has outstanding airflow and it is definitely like a rubik cube biggrin.gif Gotta get creative with it!

I bought some Frozencpu sound dampening material and applied it to the front and side panels... Seems to work well, but then again I have a fish tank 6 feet from my desk so I generally hear that. If anyone is in the market for new fans, the Gelid Wing 12 series seem to work very well.

As far as the window goes, I do want to cut one into the side where the air vent is. I'm thinking I may use the entire panel as a giant window and put a soft glowing LED strip in there. I've seen a few examples that look pretty amazing so I will draw on those for some inspiration.

I can take a few pictures of a wire that I will do start to finish and show you guys that are having some troubles how I did mine. Just know that I'm very much an amateur at sleeving but I think I have it down fairly well wink.gif

I have noticed that my sleeving tool (the 5 piece Lamptron set) sometimes won't fit immediately inside the connector, so I took one of my wife's hair pins and cut it in half and I use that to "pry open" the plug that whichever pin I am working on goes into. Just a half millimeter of space or so and I have the room for the pin removal tool. After I...get it in there...no pun...I apply force on the connector itself while gripping the wire and it generally comes free without much trouble.

For the melting portion, I bring the edge of the paracord right up to the bottom of the pin, where the wire is crimped. I'll hold a lighter to it for a couple of seconds and spin the wire a bit, and then while it is still melted / malleable, I'll give it a twist with my thumb and index finger. That kind of "locks it in" to where I want it to stay, and fits inside the connector.

This guy has a video on how to sleeve with paracord without heat shrink:

Is it a Seasonic PSU? They are a PITA to get out. I chose to make my own after destroying like 8 pins! tongue.gif

Yes, good god. This seasonic is a HUGE PITA, and i think i am at a total of 6 pins destroyed so far (its only happened on my 24 pin tho) i quickly did my 8pin and had no problem, some were still hard to get out but compared to the time i was having with the 24 pin (still unfinished) this 8 pin was a breeze!

On my corsair power supply i had the same problem with my cables. The 8pin and my two 6+2 pins were easy to remove with very little force but the 24pin was just a pain and I would have to jerk them out...luckly i didn't break any pins doing it.

Love the color choice. I used ACU paracord at one point, the stuff is extremely hot if you can pull it off with the rest of the build.
