The wire that controls my GTX 260's fan speed has been cut, and the connector pin for that wire is destroyed. My question is, does anyone know what connector pin NVIDIA uses? All I need is 1 connector pin, recrimp the wire, and I'd be set.

I think it is:
red = +12v
black = ground
yellow = rpm sensor
blue = pwm

Not sure about the order, will go check on that in a sec.

EDIT:

Ok, I think it goes, on the socket side, tab on top, left to right:

+12v, Ground, RPM Sensor, PWM. Forget the colors before, they vary from different cards.

Live life like it's overclocked.

Yeah, all the wires are black, but the one that is cut is the PWM, I guess I wasn't specific enough in saying that it was the wire that controls the fan speed. Anyway, I need to know if there is anyway of finding un-crimped connector pins so I can strip the wire and re-crimp it.
