I'm in the process of building a Triks board and have never put together a Molex connector. Anyplace where I can get some hints on how to solder wires to it (or crimp it without a set of Molex crimpers), how it fits together, etc? I just don't want to screw up my first set ;)

Some just use pliers. If you're not using a crimper, a little solder will make sure you're making a good connection. Have a look at this: http://marvin3m.com/connect/#good

TY. Exactly what I was looking for.

OMZIG!

That's the link I was going to recommend too!

I've spent a lot of time reading 'marvin's' troubleshooting guides and is the reason I have my molex crimpers!

btw... that blue handled crimper shown is really inexpensive if you look around.
I paid less then 10 bucks for mine.
