Im rebuilding an atx PSU and i see the power cables use crimps + solder to attach to the pcb. The crimps used is not the kind i have available, nor am able to find online... Do you think using another style of crimp would be okay? I am assuming it would, but i would like to be certain.

The screenshot is the crimps that i can procure.

I hope this is not too stupid of a questionIMG_20210422_090024263.jpgIMG_20210422_090046655.jpgIMG_20210417_090514115.jpgScreenshot_20210422-102146.png

You can use standard wire ferrules but the purpose of that crimp on connector is assembly in manufacturing. Note the latch to retain it. It also provides some strain relief. A ferrule will do reasonable well for that but do not tin the wire or you will eliminate most of the strain relief function.

Thanks for the help, and insight, Yaakov, I will use those crimps then
