I'm removing an Nvidia GTX 780 Ti GPU from my case, but the power connector seems unusually firmly on place. Can the power connector potentially use some locking mechanism or should I be able to pull the cord out like a standard power plug?

  • There could be a patch. It really depends on your power supply. Only you can determine if that’s the case nor not unfortunately – Ramhound Jun 27 '19 at 12:52

There is often a pin on one side that keeps it in place, like the one in this random photo I picked up from a google search. You would have to either push it down on the far end of the connector, or pull it up where it's attached to the socket.

    Yes, there was a pin which only had to be pushed down apparently. – user1055533 Jun 27 '19 at 13:03
