Grab a pack of staples and a pair of needle nosed pliers much cheaper than those tools + shipping and just as easy. I have been practicing removing the pins from my extra modular cables and this way works very nicely. If you work in a office all you need is pliers which like everyone should have anyway for pc tool kits. To remove the connector all you need to do is slide the staples down the sides of the connector and pull back on the connect there are guides on here and you-tube to show you.

Rip off 2 staples that are still glued together and bend one end to make an L-shape. All you need are two of these. Stick one of them on each side of the atx pin as such:

Press down on each of them to compress the little wings on the pin and give the cable a slight tug to pull it out.

I bought a $12 tool on frozencpu and the staple method worked much better. After some practice you will get the hang of it.

good luck

Yeah but your fingers hut like a ***** after awhile lol that is why I use my trusty old needle nosed pliers for plus you don't have to worry about impaling your finger if the staple breaks. Save your fingers use a a pair of pliers.
