I had that same issue too directly on my motherboard.
What I found is a small capacitor on my motherboard was keeping the card from sitting flat out.

As far as in a flex connector, you shouldn't run into an issue unless something weird is going on with it.

Donations welcome, not required.
I'll be honest, any donations aren't used for a good cause, they go directly to booze, food, herbal substances Wink, and computer hardware.
I will squander the money, but hell, at least you know one person is having a good time.

you may have to cut the slot on your cable at the one end to fit the card in. Ive seen tutorials somewhere about that....
