    Have been considering that type but don't know if it will be as neat, going on highly visible cable.

    If they didn't ship yet you could try to contact them. I had very positive experiences with FrozenCPU, one of the cables i ordered from them has been delivered damaged (one of the pins was disconnected), few hours after i asked how to do the RMA i got the answer that they already shipped a replacement for free :).

    Says in t&c that you have to phone to alter order. Would cost more than the $8 postage to ring from Australia to the U.K :) Did consider it though. Now just to buy some wire locally and wait for these connectors to arrive and I can move forward with my project.:dremel:

    Is there any guides etc for making your own cables which pin is for what housing is there a male and a female pin for the small 3pin and 4pin fan connectors? Got the housings right but a little stuck on how the pins work(I know you crimp them but don't know how the pins mate together male and female?). Help appreciated.
