Thanks! Lol that is EXACTLY what I did. I know I had a spare 8 pin cable so I didnt care if the one I was working on broke. I put the tool in and yanked the hell out of it. It came right out and nothing was broke, lol. Are a lot of cables like that? The 6 and 24 pin were extremely easy to come out. BOTH my 8 pin cables were hard.
