That is a royal drag. I'd try to slip it back on and save the RMA time. What a crapper.
forgot to press the release thingy? I feel for you
I think with some decent electronics hand work it an be put back in.
Might need some soldering if you ripped a few pins off the board.
First time I have seen that happen. That really does suck.
I wonder if you can RMA the board as it appears to be a defect...
superglue and string lol
I haven't seen it before either. I would try to RMA for sure, I don't think that is supposed to happen.
I seen one in last two weeks iirc , it was fixed (trying to find link )
Found link : http://forum.donanimhaber.com/m_69618976/mpage_1/f_/key_//tm.htm#msglink_71293313
thats a new one for me too never seen that before, very crappy luck that should have been stronger RMA if you can
You pulled on the locking mechanism and didn't just yank it out, right?
Definitely a defect unless you forcibly removed it and even then I don't see how it was done.
its just an 8x slot with no pins on that broken half, the other half that it's still atached on the mobo (the one that actually have pins) should still work... is it?
If it's wired to 8x and there was nothing there it should be fine. A lot of 8x slots end after the 8th lane and keeps the end of the slot open for cards that take more lanes.
This looks to be correct
Why are you angry? The slot can't do more than 8 lanes anyways. The only bad part about this is some plastic is missing.
It's a long card, this will add more pressure to the slot, it will affect any kind of resale value of the board and lastly it looks crap lol
Not that much. Nore more than it was before anyways.
True. But is it worth RMAing?
I have the same board and I thought about taking the tabs out at one point for this reason cause I have almost done this a time or two.
