I've done plenty of ethernet and phone cables in my life, but I was wondering if anyone knew the right tool to crimp PCI-e cables?

Any tips for the wire gauge to use as well?

Would this work ok?

Use 16ga Cu wire and molex pin crimpers. If you have a real crimper with removable jaws (vs the flat stamped metal ones) just get a set of jaws for Molex pins. Amp and others do sell the cheaper flat stamped type but ya get what ya pay for...
