No worries, if you are having a hard time with the paper clip thing....if you don't have a belt sander or something to flatten and thin out the round ends it won't work....then try two staples, the 4, 6, 8 and 20/24 pins all have very similar little "wings" on each side that expand larger than the hole so if you use one staple on each side to push the "wing" back in and then pull the pin out the back...make sense? Hard to describe....staples are hard on the fingers though.

I ended up using the staples, very tedious. I don't think you would be able to use them if you have bad eyesight, looking at something 1mm or less in length trying to see if it is turned to the side that is even shorter in length in a hole only a few mm's across is hard on the eyes . I ended up doing the PCI-E power cable, HD cable, and 4 pin power cable. Also did some ghetto rigging of 2 fans hehe (fan in back is blowing air out, fan in front is blowing air in).
