    Hi!
    Yesterday I've upgraded the RAM in my G4 Mac Mini but I've had a hard time fitting the case back in, as the metal fins prevented it to snap in fully. After bending those fins manually I managed to get it in place but here's the result: https://i.imgur.com/xBlYWgD.jpg

    It's solid but when I press it I can close that gap, as if there was a 1-2mm play, then it goes back into that position: https://i.imgur.com/sB4QGQr.jpg

    Is it normal?

    I know it's stupid but I have a OCD for these things. :eek:
    Thanks

    My mini was similar so I wouldn't trip over it. And when I took mine apart I broke a CPU clip. Oops :D
