    24 Pin Connector won't go in fully

    This is my first build that I was doing, and everything was fine until the 24 Pin Connector wouldn't go through fully! It has about 1 mm left to go in fully, and I've read other posts but none seem to work. My power supply is a EVGA 450 B and my motherboard is a MSI h110m pro-vd.
