  • 20 pin PSU slot

    Well my 20 pin slot on my motherboard (which is connected to the PSU) seems like it's super glued to my motherboard (not really lol), it's just so hard to remove I still haven't managed to and I don't want to apply to much force because I think I'm going to end up breaking something. Also, yes I have been pressing the release pin, anyone got any tips on how I can get it out?

    Brute force mate, feels like your going to break it, but you won't . (Unless your superman).

      Use a blade type screwdriver to prise it undone.
      My local hospital has a sign which reads "This way for accidents and emergencies." Haven't people in hospital got enough to worry about without looking for further misfortune?

                Don't be rude?

                Wiggle it and use a screwdriver, as Snakedoc suggests.

                  and on the helpful side wrap something warm around the motherboard part of the socket, makes the platic that little bit more pliable

                    wiggle it in different directions. also maybe try to take the mobo out and the powerspully and then try to take it off where you can see better, or stick the motherborad on an motherborad tray if u have one.

                        This time last year just before I started building comps, I opened up our old family desktop we had for a good 5 years and I wanted to take it apart so I could put it back together again to see how everything connects etc. The molex plugs were as stiff as! Used pliers in the end to get the things out .

                          Lol thanks guys, I'll try it out tomorrow or later when I open up my PC case, is it best not to mess around with the PSU straight after shutting it down right? Or do you think a simple 5 minute wait will be enough to clear the power out inside it?
