My case is too small for my gpu Case: Cooler master k380 GPU: MSI GTX 960 It won't slide in the ports on the side are pushing it to the side and it won't fit in my PCI-E port its really annoying me as I just fixed an issue with my case fan and now this! I just want to finish my pc already xD and also my power supply 24 pin connector doesn't go in correctly it kinda pops up at the left its so annoying! :-( Thanks for you time.

Fitting the GTX 960

This shouldn't be an issue. Maybe you're too afraid to apply some force so the card would fit. Place it above the PCI-E socket, and push is slowly down. When it finds it's place, you might apply a more force to make it sit properly. There should be enough space on the back of the case where the card is supposed to fit. Don't be afraid, tings don't break that easily. :)

24 pin power connector

It has claws to fit it to the board and prevent movement. You don't push it strong enough to it's place. Same as above. :)

Ok I have tried no but literally you know the 1'st of the three notches on the 960 the short the big then the short again the short won't align and I got to the point of where I nearly broke my MOBO pushing down ;-; btw my GPU can't find its place I am handing my pc over to someone tommorow

Could you post a picture trying to fit the card showing how it's aligned?

Although I'd guess we wouldn't see both the card's and the slot's interface trying to align, since if there isn't enough space to place the extensions on the motherboard, there surely won't be enough space to make a proper picture. :(

Yeah it's like you know the three connectors to the mobo? The small the long then the small it's very very annoying as the 1st one is no where near the first Slot on the MOBO and the second long one is on the last slot and the middle one

GPU: Make sure you take off enough of the case GPU slot covers. Sometimes you have to take off the one above the card to get the card to seat properly. Depends on the cover design.

You can reinstall the cover once the GPU is seated.
