I have a Gateway GT5238E PC, and in order to upgrade the hard drive, the air duct needs to be removed. While I was removing that, it broke as it's just cheap plastic. Will I still be able to use my PC? Or will it overheat? I'm not sure how important that piece was. Here is a picture of it:
It also had a fan in it. Please let me know what you guys think! The computer is off for now just to be sure. Thanks!
