He said so a couple of times you'll have to use a pin extractor to take them out, or you gotta get a modular PSU lol

Can you sleeve the power cables while they're still attached to the PSU?

I done my old psu's 20 pin without taking it off,You just have to fold the wire's the right way and the sleeving will slip right on.

what if i cut the wires of the molex, then sleeve it, then solder it back and put electric tape. that would do the job right? but is it commendable to do?

and if i want to add some length to the molex adapters, what wire should i get? do i still have to use color coded wires (yellow, black, black, red) or speaker wires would do?

thanks..
