Alright guys well the good news is this is the first time posting here on my new computer I just finished building (first time, yayyyy!). The bad news is I am STRESSING my video card!! The first one I got I had to return because the HDMI port was not working. This one seems fine HOWEVER unlike the first one I am unable to completely insert the PCI express power cables. Its a gigabyte gtx 670 and it has one six pin and one eight pin. The six pin inserts all the way until it is flush. The eight pin, however (which inserted all the way on my first one btw) inserts until about 1.5 millimeters before complete insertion. I tried about 10 times out and in again and braced the back of the card with my middle finger as I pushed and applied the limit of the pressure I felt comfortable with. During the final push as it slides in it felt as if the pins were making contact so that's why I decided to go ahead and give it a try (appears to be working fans are spinning and I am using it right now) but it still is not all the way in despite the enormous amount of pressure I applied (the six pin and the eight pin on the first card both slid all the way in on the first card with the same ease as the six pin did here) and the latch on the power cord is unable to hook on the connector because it's not in all the way. Is this something I should worry about? If it wasn't getting the power from all the pins it wouldn't even work, right? Do I have to worry about it falling out some time, and if one of the pins disconnects will that, like, fry the card? I mean I could live with it and if a problem arose RMA it if I had to I suppose but how uncommon is this problem? I'm also afraid that if I go to sell it in the future to upgrade if this will give me a problem.
Thanks for the input guys.
