Hi guys, I tried to re-apply the thermal paste myself but when it came to disconnecting the wire connectors from the logic board, 3 of the connectors came off completely from the logic board or has damaged the pins. (the battery connection, and two for the left fan) I have a feeling that these three became brittle or weak from the heat that was generated from the laptop (hence i wanted to do the thermal paste mod). Or it's just my stupidity that these broke. But the others came off without a problem. What I wanted to know is, is it possible to have these connectors fixed by sending my logic board away to Apple or do I need to buy a new logic board? Then if I have to buy a new logic board, can I put in a 2.6GHz Penryn instead of the original 2.4ghz? I'm so embarrassed, depressed and angry all at the same time, hope someone can help.
