Hey guys sorry for the trouble

I have accidently broken a usb 3.0 pin upon removing the stiff cable.. i bent it at first then tried to readjust it but it snapped clean off...

Now my biggest worry is, will it short the mobo/ is it safe for long term use?? Im not using that header anymore.

The pin i broke was the IntA_P1_SSRX-

The usb still work if plug it in for usb 2.0, but apparently usb 3.0 capabilities are limited... im not worried about this...


Is it safe to leave this header like this or should i get repaired or rma'd.
