Hi

I have a motherboard with 4/6 SATA ports disabled due to plugging in a SATA 3 M.2 drive. The 2 working ports are hidden behind a bottom intake fan as the case is a MicroATX case, the tolerances are tight. In order to use a 2.5" SSD i have, ive had to plug it in behind the fan. This obviously hits the fan and the pressure is ever so slightly bending the motherboard by like 0.2mm - 0.4mm. Something ever so slight, nonetheless i can see it bending due to the pressure. The port and the motherboard works fine, but just worried about the bending having any adverse affects?

Would this be ok to leave as is?

Thanks in advance!

I think it will be ok.
Every motherboard has a breaking point, and 0.2mm-0.4mm is not a problem in the slightest.
Post a pic just in case?
I wasn't able to really get a photo without disassembling half of the system as it also hides underneath the GPU, but, willing to take the chance!
