Can It remove 6-pin pci e and 8-pin cpu power as well as the 24-pin power connector?

Is this thing even good?

Sorry but it's really hard to read the font on my netbook x_x

That tool is good for removing the pins from Molex connectors.

If it is the same as mine, each end serves a different purpose: One end for the Male pin, the other end for Female pin


[edit]

This kit (which is the one I have) is a little more extensive and will have all the tools necessary for what you propose.

Wait, so uh, it won't work with the 6-pin pci connectors? Kind of confused

That will do the trick, the hard part is learning how to depress the locking tabs with the tool.

Hmmm.... I may have jumped the gun on my initial response as the image looks identical to the Molex pin removal tool. It doesn't look as slender as the Aux PCIE pin removal tool that I have...


now Imma kinda confused too... redface.gif


If you wanna spring for the SunBeamtech tool kit, you will have all that you need to mod a PSU and all applicable connectors.


I'm sorry that I can't be more specific.

Totally understandable that you wish to spend as little money is possible and get what you need.

I'm not certain that you will be able to use the same tool for all the pins that you need to remove. I realise that with some tweaking of and some household items that you could achieve what you want, but it might be safer to use task-specific tools in this scenario. 2cents.gif

Fwiw, Here is the same kit for 9.99 (if you are the only bidder) + 4.95 sh/h.

I don't know what the shipping would be for the single tool you initially posted from Performance PC's to your location, but the difference in total cost of the single tool vs. the total cost of the linked kit may be less than 5 bucks (guessing).

I think I'll just get the sunbeam kit from PPCs, I'm making an order there anyways so shipping is "free" for this item
