Pin Removal/Pin Endings

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Is this a pin remover for 3 pin fans? http://en.mdpc-x.com/mdpc-sleeve/sle...e-original.htm

Also, what type of pin endings will I need? I am getting 20 black pin endings for my fans but what kinds will I need for the CPU/GPU/PSU/etc?

Thanks

Thanks mate.

What type of pin endings should I be getting? I'm getting 20 of these for my fans: http://en.mdpc-x.com/mdpc-cable-asse...ck-housing.htm

Are there any others I should be getting?

those are not the pins they are the connectors that the pins go into.

Yeah sorry. You're right. I'm looking to replace them all on my fans.

Will I need other types or should I get extra 3 pins?

well that depends on what you want... if you are just doing 3-pin fans then yea, thats all you need, but if you have some 4-pin molex or PWM fans you will need those connectors.

You don't really need to buy a pin-remover. The ordinary precision screwdriver will be just fine for removing. If you don't have a set of precision screwdrivers just use your money to buy them. Much better investment.

^ this. If you are just doing fans, don't spend the extra cash on that pin remover.

that first tool is for eps/atx pins (ie, 24/20-pin, 8-pin, pcie 8 & 6 pin). for a fan, there is a special tool that resembles a fork (or you can use anything with a fine point). For molex, there is also a special tool for it to remove both male and female.

edit: here's the one I bought: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11...IT.html?tl=g44
