Anybody know where I can find these things? I'm concerned that my new build might be intermittently shorting an unused plug against the chassis, because I've had a couple of spontaneous shutdowns that happened when I bumped the case. (yes, the motherboard is properly grounded.)

Why get fancy? I mean it's inside the case, right?
You could just cut off a section from a balloon and wrap it around the end
and use a rubber band to secure it.

or rip one out of a spare pc and take the wires out, then plug it in to the one that seems to be causing the problem.
unless you're ripping apart a cdrom or something, that won't work... PSU molex are Male, and you need a female. You'd have to use a molex from a device for that to work... but, yes, it would work.

I've got a box with devices from about 12 years ago right up to 6 weeks ago when i replaced some shit.

If you've got a a plug I guarantee I've got something I'll never use again that fits in it.

I've got a couple of the adapters that let you plug a fan in between
a cable and a hard drive. So it has female on one end and male on the other.
