Has this happened to anyone before?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone I was just doing some testing in my system and I needed to disconnect one of the fans from one of the motherboard headers and I must have grabbed the wrong spot because the plastic piece of the motherboard header came up with the fan connector O_O

Apparently they aren't secured by anything no glue no solder nothing.

The pins themselves are fine and I just put the plastic piece back on and heard a little click when I did.

A question I do have is i'm assuming everything is fine and I should just be careful where I'm grabbing next time with my big fingers?

OK cool thank you for the reassurance, I was always under the assumption that they were secured down to the board with a type of glue or soldered to it.
