Didn't realize they came empty, what connectors do I buy to go in the housing? It's for a world cup soccer 11 pin GI molex connector that burnt. Any help appreciated, thanks!

And don't just replace the connector, you need to replace the pins on the board too.

Depending on the connector housings you purchased, you may not want trifurcon pins. If you look up the Molex connector part number it should tell you what series of Molex terminals/pins it works with. I'm speaking from experience Early on I made the mistake of using trifurcon .156 pins in a Molex housing they weren't made for and they fit SUPER TIGHT onto the header pins on a Williams Sys7 board. They did not go on easily and definitely did not come off without a fight! And that was with the board out of the machine (at the bench) where I had access from all angles.
You'll probably be fine with the trifurcon, but just so you know there are .156 connector housings that won't work with them properly.

Alright, so just to make sure I get the right connector for the board as suggested and replace that too... is it the CP100-11-LR Connector, 0.1" Plug, 11 Pin?
No. You need .156, not .1, size.
Get this one, cut to size :

And make sure you put the connectors in the housing the right way (there is a locking barb that locks onto a slot) otherwise you'll have to damage the connector to get it out and start all over cutting, stripping and reconnecting.
