That would be a good idea, but I've used needlenose pliers and a drop of solder when I've had to replace the odd pin. If I was doing a total rewire, yes I'd definitely grab a crimper.

Active electronics is where I get all my pins and crimpers. Prices arent bad and have a great selection.

Bit of a revive.

If the OP still needs a solution, I suggest checking out the new NZXT extensions.

I have a 200 foot roll of the techflex sleeving if anyone wants it. Just pay shipping. I am not a fan of it.

I assume it is black? Would you sell ~30 feet?

resuricating. the new nzxt extensions makes this kinda pointless now, the only thing worth sleeving anymore are the sata cables (and re-crimping)

Hey lowfat are you talking about this one on fleabay? I got 75 feet of that stuff, I don't love it either but it's alright I guess, sharpie the cables black (actually a very dark purple that's nearly black) because my parents don't want to have vinyl stinking up their house and I can't wait until summer.

Questions guys, I flattened 2 staples and inserted them on either ends of the square thingy and I can't seem to pull the cable out.. could it be that the staple isn't thick enough?
