Hey.
I for some reason can't seem to connect these two cables. I did connect them in the past but now for some reason it won't let me do it, although I did connect the first one out of the three. (pcie cables)

I'd really appreciate some help!

Here's a YouTube clip I made to show you guys what I'm talking about! (Hopefully this helps!

little more information would be useful.

What PSU, GPU and if possible do you have pictures?

These new 3to1 cables can be tight sometimes. Just check to make sure none of the pins are bent and they're slotting in correctly. Hard to mess that up, if it's all good just press a bit more. You can also just verify with the working cable that it matches with the other two and see if it gets stuck similarly. Usually just a tight tolerance issue.

Yeah, I checked and I can't seem to connect these last two. Everything seems fine but for whatever reason they just don't connect. I don't want to press too hard.

Frustrating.

As long as everything matches pin and fitting wise (kinda hard to mess that up unless everything fits in the square hole.) you should be fine to apply some pressure. These connectors have been rough to click in from my experiences.
