What concerns me is that you should never, ever be able to simply pull the terminal off the conductor. Believe me, I have crimped many thousands of terminals when I used to manufacture wiring harnesses. If the terminal came off the conductor that easily, I would question the quality of all the crimps on all the wires.
So far I've done 2 6-pin cords for my gpu and more than half of the 24-pin cord sleeved, this was the only one I pulled off from the conductor. Idk, maybe the quality is questionable, but I was also rushing towards the end.

Man, I'm so disappointed. I was more than 90% finished sleeving the 24-pin..

The wings seemed to be in tact. I carefully took out the conductor? or w/e its called after ripping off the cord.

I'm thinking of soldering it back together now if Frys doesn't have it. If that doesn't work, then I'll cut it off and try re using the old conductor.

Definitely not a real end all solution however.

Sometimes if I bump my computer it will shut off and Ill need to open it so I can wiggle the 24 pin connector to restart it. Pain in the ass but I keep forgetting to get a crimp tool properly fix it.
Must not be a solid connection.. if soldered correctly, it should be better than a crimped on connector that can slide off.

Sometimes the crimps weren't tighted enough so the wire can be pulled out without much effort since the wings that secure it to the actual connector are stronger than the grip of the wire.

As Arctucas stated the correct name of those type of connectors (20-24 pin ATX, PCIe power, 4-pin CPU power, 8-pin CPU power etc) are mini fit-jr by molex . There's a similar connector called Micro-fit that looks almost the same from photos, but actual size is different. Besides mouser you can buy the plastic connectors and pins from digi-key too

Female pin # is 5556 and male pin is 5558

Edit: this was for Somenamehere, whoops!

If it shuts down when bumping your PC then it's not correctly soldered, maybe the actual wire isn't making the connection with the pin but it's the solder instead :/

bought a soldering iron and some solder. After eating dinner, I'm going to watch some videos about soldering. The one little metal string that was cut off, looks like its going to be hard to resolder together...

If this doesn't work, I'm going to try to cut the wire and redo the connection.

Also the conductor... Can I open up the middle part? Sorry if I don't make any sense, but at the end of the conductor is where you connect the wire. After that is the smaller part where its formed like a 3. Can I open that smaller one?

Where do you live? I can fix it for you. I have all the tools in the world and can do it in about 30 seconds flat.

sigh I live in GA.... Ugh.

Thanks for the offer though!

-edit-
oh you're a moderator. I was wondering what happened to the rep button..

Now that I've had my dinner, I noticed theres one strand of metal string in the conductor. I was thinking about soldering the one stand of metal together but now it seems impossible. So now I'm thinking about cutting and stripping the wire. Can I leave the one single strand of metal in the conductor while connecting it to the wire...?

Ok I give up. This isn't going in and the second connection where it touches the tiny metal strand isn't opening. I have nothing small enough to open it up. I just placed an order of molex connectors.

You need the proper applicator (crimping tool) to install the terminal (pin) on the conductor (wire).

No offense, but it sounds as if you are unsure what you are doing. I would recommend taking the PSU to a reputable computer repair shop and having them do the repairs.
