Hi i've bought MSI RX 570 Gaming X 4G. I've unboxed it and tried to plug it to mothetboard. But the card crossed to HDD Cage for 3CM so i couldn't plug it. I tried to plug it through HDD cage and the card is successfully plugged in case but card's 8 Pin power connector stuck inside so i can't put 8-Pin PCIE power cable. Is there any ti
ps to plug that PCIE power cable inside?

Just be careful to clean out all the metal shavings after drilling. You don't want them to go onto the circuit boards and cause shorts. You can hold a vacuum next to the drill bit while drilling to catch most of it before it spreads, then clean up the rest after removing the drive cage.

I've started drilling it. Thanks to advice. I'll write when it's done.
