    Hey guys, just picked up an Antec True 430. It has the molex for SATA connectors, how do I remove these so I can sleeve the rail?

    I have tried fooling around with the molex connector and i cannot get it off! My other rails are all sleeved now except the ones with the SATA power on them :(...HELP!! :wallbash:

    right,

    get a tiny screw driver, and in the top there u can just see opening, pop a screw driver in, push down GENTILY to release the pin and then slowly and carefully pull the pin out!

    There are a couple types of ways SATA connectors are done. There's the low-profile "T-style" and then there's the one that uses the connection similar to an SATA converter cable with the pins.

    If it's the T-style, gently pull off the back cap thing and just pull the wires out. Remember what order they go back in! If it's the one with the pins, take a small flathead screwdriver and GENTLY lift the little black tab that holes it in a TINY bit. It doesn't need to go up very far at all and they break quite easily (trust me).

    There is also another type which comes with a heat shrunken housing. No way to remove the pins without removing the shrink housing :blah:

    Oh those solid plastic ones? Yeah, but those typically only come on the 6" molex->sata adaptors.

    cut it off right below the IDC Sata conn and make a adaptor out of it (no 3.3v wire though, have to lop that off too).

    I would buy another SATA IDC and add it to the line if you need another connection
