Hi there I have a Mid 2012 macbook Pro 15inch I was cleaning the fans the other day and when to pull the fan connector out and the socket on the logicboard came off the board so I’m waiting to get it soldered back on to the logic board but in the mean time I need to use my mac and I’m scared i might damage it in relation

to temperature the temps its running are:

CPU: 37 -45°C

GPU: 33°C

GPU Diode: 35°C

Memory: 34°C

Chad Lawrence no it is not. It is never okay to run it without the fan. There is a reason why it has those fans in the first place. Right now your values look ok but rest assured once you start working on your computer and using it, those temps will go up. So unless you do not like your computer, don't do use it until fixed.
