Hi everyone,

I'm currently planning my 1000d build and thanks to DevBikers information in this thread I will also make my own cables. I did want to buy cables from piratedog_tech, but shipping to Germany, customs and import feas make it way to expensive.

I tried finding the correct connectors on different sites in the EU and couldn't find them. Reichelt does no longer list all necessary Molex parts for Fan Hub Splitters, RGB Fan Extensions etc. But I found one shop www.buerklin.com, which has reasonable shipping costs and doesn't ship only to companies. I haven't ordered the parts yet but plan to at the end of the month.
Maybe DevBiker could ad that source to the thread.

Thanks!

Have anyone tried 16020107 pin for RGB Fans instead of 0016020114?
In Molex datasheet it is says that they are alternatives. And 16020107 is $0.1 for piece and 0016020114 is $0.5 for piece. Haven't tried it, just thinking to buy

One is cut tape and designed to be used in machines. They come connected to a tape strip and would need to be separated from that strip before manual crimping. The other is loose and easier to handle manually. Other than that, I think that they are the same.

If getting the CT version, get extra. It's highly likely that you'll ruin a few when separating it from the tape manually.

Thx! I've just got info from Molex directly. You're wright!
That's the same pins just one on tape and other separately by piece. Oh, and separated ones are with gold on the end of pin. And 5 time price dropped.
For separating I've got special tool.

I want to extend the 3pin cable coming out from my Corsair waterblock. It has a Molex 50-57-9403.

Whats the male counterpart? I can see that it fits a 3pin fan header, which means I can use a male fan header, but it doesnt lock into place.

Any help?

Thanks!

That's the same as a strip extension. Part numbers are already listed in the post.

That fan header? It's not for RGB. It's a standard fan connector that you can use any fan extension for. It's used for pump speed control and tachometer.

Excellent thread! Thank you!

I try to find all necessary components to build some rgb cable extensions for my Corsair ll120 rgb fans but no luck :(

And an update:
I found everything at Buerklin!

I also bought toughcablepro Cat5e cable (which I hope is not too stiff)
https://www.ui.com/accessories/toughcable/

as well as this Molex crimping tool (I hope it’s suitable for the job).

SN-28B Crimping Tool for Dupont/JST/Molex 18-28 AWG
https://www.cableworks.gr/ilektronik...lex-18-28-awg/

More news soon,... I hope.

Just received all required items but apparently I miscalculated 2 things on which I would appreciate your opinion...

The Cat5e cable I bought does not include 8x twisted strand cables but 8x single “solid” 24awg conductor cables. Would that be ok?

Also, which cable stripper would you recommend for these very thin 24awg cables. I had one cable stripper certified for 0.5mm but completely cuts/destroys the cable.

Thank you!!!

The crimper should be OK. I'm not sure the brand because ... well ... it's all Greek to me. ;-)

The Cat5e should be OK.

As for the cable stripper - on the video, I used precision manual strippers that would strip down to AWG 30. Now, solid wire will be thinner than stranded wire of the same gauge but that should still be OK as long as your precision strippers can handle it.

Just wondering if anyone can comment on the new QL series fans and their rgb 4 pin cables. I'm building a 1000D system and I'm in need of RGB extension cables for them. I can't find anyone who explicitly supports them for their cables. Cheers
