    You shall buy a good pin remover man, also when you insert the tool inside the connector, keep pushing and then gently remove the pin. Dont release the tool before you remove the pin. Its something that takes time and .... pain! Happy modding!!!! ;PPPP

    I also used small sewing needles to push the sides of the ATX pins so I could pull the pins out. It's very annoying and should just invest in a Tool for it. Or talk to some sponsors. You could always check youtube for a cable sleeving tutorial.

    I would get hold of a proper pin remover, I have got a good remover for the molex... just get a ball point pen and take the inners out, the tube fits over the molex pins and pull out easy.

    but as for the 24/6/8 and 4 pin connectors it is a heck of a lot of hassle with anything but the proper tool.

    yeah i've noticed, the area around the pin is too small and then the weird shapes of the holes aren't helping either

    i've sent sunbeamtech an email about sponsorhip ( i've heard a few things about their kit )

    good news, Freddy from Highflow offered me something

    since i still don't have the connectors that were being send in an enveloppe and it's been 2 weeks ago, he sent me a mail.

    i could buy it again , but this time get it send in a package ( boxed) without having to pay the shipment, and if i ever get the enveloppe i could send it back and get a refund when i do


    so thumbs up for Freddy from Highflow :thumb:

    ok this is how the mod is right now... still a lot needs to happen

    what basicly still needs to be done is:
    -Get a new can of black
    -Paint the power supply plate black ( which i've forgotten to)
    -Paint the clear fans into black/white
    -buy some black anti vibration plugs ( the ones that came with the 2 Fractal fans are quite hard to use in my honest opinion)
    -Sleeve all the cables and do some cable management
    -Try to find the I/O shield and paint it white

    (somehow the paint looks bad with the flash/ sun on it on the camera but it doens't look like that in real life, though at some parts it does a tiny bit, so that will be re-done)

    also my lovely un-pin tool broke :S.. i didn't even finish 1 cable haha...so untill i get the out of it with some paperclips that will wait..

    Nah don't use paper clips. Use sewing needles. They are much pointier and can get in the pins better. If you use a pin the has a little plastic ball on the top it makes life much easier on your fingers.

    Looks awesome so far though. Nice n' simple.
