    ATX 24 Pin stuck like the friggen dickens

    Ok, "like the dickens" just means = all the damn way.

    I cannot get the 24pin atx cable out of my motherboard.

    Before anyone asks...

    yes, the safety latch is disengaged and remains so as I attempt full removal.

    It's just in there like a banshee. Wasn't even that hard to insert....but now...holy hell.

    I've tried massaging it, slight pressure with a flathead screwdriver, firm rocking motions, swearing at it, and everything else in between.

    Ideas? it lifts out like 10-15% and then bam...just doesn't want to move any further.

    Has it been stuck for longer than four hours?

    All kidding aside, try a hair dryer, that can help with jammed connectors.

    Lol it’s been stuck for exactly four hours. I installed to test fit a cable run, and the fucker won’t come back out!

    Weirdly my wife doesn’t own a hair dryer. Curly hair

    had this issue on a hp motherboard.
    atx plug sat on the socket no issue, smooth as kasmir silk.
    no luck in removing the coupling without pissing about trying to flex the plug in various ways, using all manner of things.
    thin strong spikes such as jeweller scrwedrivers helped to pry it free.
    filed down the coupling, no issues since.
    [edit]
    keys.

    It's possible you went too deep.

    No but for real I’ll have to separate them via small flathead screwdrivers I believe, then file down the connectors. At some point
