    M2-ATX Better Crimp On Connectors?

    I want to find some type of connector (crimp on or solder) that would turn my 3 M2-ATX wires into a nice little socket. I would then do the same to the +,-,rem wires. Basically have all 3 wires on the M2 turn into 1 MALE wire and all the other set of wires be the FEMALE. I was thinking of using a molex connector but the gauge is different so I don't think that would work. I can't find anything like this. Does anyone know what these are called or know of one? Thanks.

    Search for AMP plugs/connectors, or even Molex have a huge variety of different plugs and connectors.

    As my system is built into an aluminium box, I just put in one of those female 3 pronged connectors used on normal PC's and conncted the wires from teh m2 to the back of the connector. I then connected the wires from the car (12v, ground & acc) to the male connector.

    I installed my carpc into my pet Kangaroo, mate.

    I ordered a 9 pin molex connector from Parts express so I could tie the power ground and accy from the m2atx's, as well as 12v, 5v, remote, and 2 grounds. Easy plug and unplug opperation.

    I used a Molex five pin mating connector set that I got off the shelf at Fry's. Three for the M1 power, switched input and ground. The other two feed 12V and 5V out of the PC. The 12V runs my Xenarc. 5V is for future use.
