Default Molex mods

Im looking to take a molex and modify it, lengthen it. Some one mentioned a tool to do this with on tf. Can some one give me a link to that. I am also looking for spare male and female ends that i can play around with. All I can find are y spliters on newegg. Im not looking for anything fancy, with leds. Just pices that I can mod.

Thanks.

it's called a molex pin remover, it may be 90 mm or so but you want it be exact if your having trouble then just take it back and try to get the right size. you can get them at radioshack but be very careful about the male though.

yeah, they got different gauges of wire depending on how much voltage you plan on putting through it. The molex wires should have that kind of info on them so if it is, try and find the same wire
