Maybe a crappy cable. Try a different one?

Still...it might be slight manufacturing tolerance issues. 0.25mm difference. Try a different cable.

Assuming this is a new build....
Let's look to the I/O shield. Is everything in place as it should be?

Yes everything lines up


I know its a PITA, but if you were to take the motherboard out....would the cable then click in to place?
