So I bought an Asus ROG Strix X470-F Gaming motherboard, routed my cables, and realized I could do better cable management so I went to pull out the USB3 cable from the case front panel from the motherboard, and the plastic socket around the pins came out with it. And so I returned it to the store, expecting to get a new one. However, after about a week of "testing", they tell me that it boots into windows with no problems, and that the socket might fall off and this is totally normal, so after telling me it's totally normal that new products fall apart, they offered me a $50 gift card as compensation. I was thinking I'd take it and just deal with the socket being loose, but today I recieved the motherboard, and well, they put the socket on upside-down as seen in these three pictures.
As you can also see in the last picture, they didn't put it all the way down, and it's not on straight. This is a snippet of the manual, showing the USB3 header (item 14) with the notch for the plug pointing upwards, not downwards like they put it on.
They said they tested it and that it works. But couldn't it be damaged if they tested it plugging the USB3 cable upside-down?
I can definitely fix it myself, so it's not a huge deal, really, but I'm worried about the board being damaged if they tested the USB3 port with it connected upside-down.
