I always felt they were really fragile. If you break them, could you send the SSD or HDD back to manufacturer and would they repair it?

My SATA connectors are solid, I have heard that corsair ones are indeed weak tho. And no it is not covered on warranty if you damage it, though it doesn't hurt to ask.

Kewl, it's all good.

One of the SATA cables actually broke when I accidentally slid the drive bay out with-out unplugging the SATA connectors off from the SSD.

So I got a new SATA cable. And I ordered some longer SATA data cables. The connectors or computer chip piece that the SATA cables connect to (I'm not sure what you call it exactly) on the SSD look fine though.

I'll triple check next time before just sliding out a random hard drive bay to make sure everything is disconnected.

I remember one time though I was helping my friend repair his computer and he knew nothing about computers and had ADHD.

It was his dads old gaming computer ,but still pretty good (Pentium 4, 9800GT Nvidia, solid aluminum gaming case, ram heatsinks), you could tell it was a good computer in its prime .

Anyway, the case had a motherboard tray and he started yanking on it and PULLING it out of the case so we could get inside.

It WAS NOT coming out. Finally he YANKED ON IT hard as heck, and it came out, but I was like "something is wrong here, it shouldn't have come out with such a struggle".

Then I realized he NEVER unplugged any of the 24pin or 8pin or ANY connectors of the motherboard! HE just slid it out lol!
