Fan connector broken off motherboard, is fan needed for function?
The computer in question is a 2012 13" macbook pro with the i5. I understand the fan plays a role in cooling the hardware, but will the laptop itself check for it? In theory I can wire said fan up to any old power source and just let it run full tilt and the computer wont throw any errors at me in regards to a missing component?
Is this a good question?
