Left fan connector came off motherboard, can I hardwire?
Well, finally got my backlight problem solved, it turned out to be the left I/O board.
When I was removing the left fan, the connector came loose from the logic board, and I tried to resolder, but it was simply not possible with my iron and skills.
Can I hardwire the fan? I really don't mind if it runs at full speed all the time, I just want it to cool.
The computer runs fine with the fan disconnected, but I have a feeling that long term, it would not be good to only run the right fan, since the GPU is all the way over on the left.
What would be a good source of power and ground to tap into to hardwire the fan?
Is this a good question?
