    Some people can do it with toothpicks. You push it in the molex and then it will come out if you press it right. I can't explain any better. There are tools though. But if you do that with your PSU and rewire it wrong you can fry your PSU.

    There are 2 prongs that need to be pressed in to remove each of the metal connectors from the plastic plug and usin' 2 of the flat type of toothpicks is ideal for the purpose as they'll fit between the connector and the plastic.

    found a cheap pen that works fine, but now i have an old y-crapper for the power supply molex, so i'll be using the female end to push the clips in.

    I've found a small jewelers screwdriver works nicely too, if one is handy.
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.
