Sli bridge connector does not fit well

Hi, my mobo came with a sli bridge, but when i try to put it on my 9800gtx and 9800gtx+, they don't fit good. It is a solid connector and i had to push it a little to the left to connect the 2 cards. I am worried that it might cause problems and that the pins might not be lining up properly. The sli bridge connector doesnt look like its bending but it does look a little crooked when its connected to the cards.
It seems like its working properly, but sometimes my fps would be at 55 in crysis wars but then drop to 27fps all of a sudden randomly, but then 3-7 seconds later, it would go back to 55fps. I didn't have this problem with only one card before i got sli.
could this be caused by the sli bridge not aligning right? what should i do?

I use the "solid type" sli bridge on my P5N-D to connect 2 9800 GTs.

The SLI bridge is either on or off, meaning it's working or it isn't. If it looks slightly crooked but you're certain SLI is properly working, then leave it alone. You could try and post a picture so we can see.

You have two different cards that might not be 100% compatible for SLI unless you've done some BIOS flashing?
