hhhhhhmmmm i don't see an reason why it would not fit. all looks standard to me. how is it not fitting? plastic shaped different? or the internal metal contacts different shape?

looking at the specs, i don't see anything special about either item

The plastic is different, they are not the same shape. The photo is a little blurry. But what I want to know is why they are different shaped. They are both 8 pins so I’m confused

often people confuse pcie connection with cpu one, but that's not the case here. i looked at the specs for mobo and psu and nothing to indicate there was non-standard connections.

so not sure why they are not right. i don't know of anything different about x79 vs other chipsets that would explain it. i'm gonna dig some and will get back, but i'm as confused as you are right now

That should have no problem fitting, even though some are the rounded connections, they still fit in a square port.
The side of the EPS cable with the clips should go to the right in the second picture, matching them up looks like it should be fine.

No. That 4+4pin is what's used. However, you must actually fit the 2x halfs together, they are keyed with slots, to make a single 8pin. If you try them seperately, they don't fit. The snap tab goes on the inside of the mobo, not towards the outside.
