So in short, the rgb connector on my water block was damaged during shipping and fell off during installation. I was wondering if anyone had some good at home tips or suggestions for repairs. Im no stranger to wire maintenance but currently lack tools for soldering. Any suggestions are helpful!:)

You will need to solder that wire back on there, and since you don't have soldering tools, I'd just return it and say it was shipping damaged

the only issue with returning it is that it is only the rgb and its already installed as my primary cooling source. Im hoping to avoid uninstalling it for longer than needed to repair the wire. I don't want to go through the shipping and waiting over some RGB that in reality isn't necessary for function, I just want it to look cool haha

If its standard connector, you could buy splitter and cut&solder another header.
