MMMM paracord. Looks good. Just rebuilt my system after having it torn down for a week. Will take some pictures of the new sleeving tomorrow when I tear it back down to add some led lighting.

Webster, I found that ConnectorZ one for even cheaper on jabtech

http://www.jab-tech.com/ConnectorZ-Molex-Crimp-Tool-pr-2174.html

This thread has a bunch of people using these crimps with good results. The dab of solder method also doesn't sound like a bad way to do it.

http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?242609-Which-Molex-Crimping-Tool

I might just go to Home Depot and grab one since I can easily take it back. Being able to feel it in person would be awesome.

Do what you want, just don't come complaining later it's not good lol. From my experience, the practice of buying cheap, ends up expensive.

What I said about the psu totally makes sense. Unless you have a good 80+ modular psu, it's not worth bothering with. Also, don't think only about the present but on future projects as well. You can also find out that you like it so much that you will create stuff for others and quickly earn up the expense on good tools.

I obviously agree with adi and the others being I sell the crimper, please get ahold of me as if I need to give you a discount to get a good crimper in your hands I will do it.

The difference is so huge, but you cannot see it or understand it until you have used a proper tool with molex pins.

I agree, I used a D-sub crimper I found at Radio shack for some ATX pins. Painful.

Its all about the experience. For those that don't care about quality go cheap. You have two bad experiences above clearly showing how bad these are, and you still want to get one? I'm not trying to start a argument but good grief. It's not worth it to get a cheap crimper and then spend money for another one down the road because that one is garbage.

Jesus, expensive =! automatically mean good. That is a stupid way of thinking and then you have this dude going "huurrr buy a $500 overkill e-peen PSU so you can justify it" and it makes it even worse. Did you even read the XS thread I linked to? Its no jab at lutro because I'm sure his is really good but for the 2 fail stories you posted there are 5 success stories in the XS thread. I guess those people are lying?

Anyways this has gotten off topic since all I wanted to know is if those I posted worked size wise. Don't have experience with those? Don't post about them then.

Yeh. That's what happened to me exactly. I was really thinking Moddiy ready-to-go sleeved cables are good but eventually, after getting them I found out they're sub-par and not that accurately made (I spent a fortune believing it's the best thing). Also, after getting Mdpc, I realized there isn't much room for comparison. I also got the B28 crimper and thought it's exactly like the Mdpc tool. Well, it's not a bad tool but it's still one level lower. However, in all of this, I realized something more important. There's nothing better than you learning the how-to and making it yourself. That's true modding freedom. biggrin.gif

@Moto: soldering is a pain in the ass. Seriously. I wasn't saying get a 500$ psu. I've got a Seasonic X-560. This psu cost me slightly more than 120$ and it's absolutely worth it, especially for the reason I can make my cables, move on to a different model of the X, say an X-860 (or get Corsair AX) and still be able to use my cables. Also, let's say you're now building a new rig and want to move your current sleeved psu to another rig, maybe smaller one. All you have to do is make new cables for it, at the exact size you want. It has a lot of value whereas non-modular is a PITA to sleeve and modify. That's the point I was trying to make really. I don't know where you live but in the States such good psus can be had for way less than I paid for mine.

Isn't there a group of OCNers that do custom cables? If you can do an 8 pin and 24 pin for under or around $40 then I'd be down.

I still might go to home depot and get a bunch of crimpers so we can get sort of a database of capable crimpers.

Don't take my posts as flaming btw. I'm a tight ass and also a manufacturing engineer so I always look at things and say "I could make it way cheaper!". Hell I've heard of people using needle nose plier's to do it so I might even try that. The ultimate budget way.

Edit: my PSU was over $120 but I'm down sizing to a 140mm one.
