How good is this tool for pin removal? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Imho, you are making a "good" choice.

Some peeps mod something once and are forever done with modding... others however become consumed by modding... everything gets modded... the computer, the household appliances, the car, the family pet...

I have that exact tool. It works on the 20/24-pin, 4/8-pin CPU power, and 6/8-pin PCI-e power connectors; as they all use the same type of pin. The only downside to that tool is that the fingers can fairly easily bend (particularly after extended use), but at least you can loosen a setscrew that allows you to pull out the tube with the fingers and cut in a new set of fingers (or even replace the whole tube).

Syr...as much as you have mentored me over the last however many years, I need to throw in my objection to the Sunbeamtech kit. Before you swing the axe, let me explain myself. I have used that very kit several times and broken the fingers that push the pins out within minutes every single time.

Your best bet for CHEAP pin removal is $2 at Office Depot.

If you want soemthing a little more pro, get the original Molex pin removal tool invented and made by the Molex company themselves.

In fact, it's the very same one that Nils at MDPC-X sells

Bump for the original molex remover. I've only ever seen it broken by dropping it on the floor.

My method is to push the pin up deeper into the socket, stick the extractor in and wiggle it a little bit to get the retention pins flattened out. Keep applying downward pressure with the extractor and yank the pin out. Some power supply manufactures have slightly different tolerances on their plugs. While one may be a breeze to extract others you might have to pull on a bit harder. Don't get discouraged if you think the tool is garbage, it might just be poor tolerances on the psu plug's plastic.

If anyone needs to order replacement pins, they are the Molex Minifit Jr.
