I Broke My PS3 Fan Connection

Hey all, Im new here and hoping you guys can help me fix my ps3

I was working on my ps3 today to fix ylod, and by mistake I completely broke off the 3 pin connector that attaches the fan to the mother board. I plugged in my ps3 and I successfully got rid of the ylod but after only a couple seconds it advises me that the system is too hot and it must turn off.

Any idea how I can get this working again?

I tried connecting the wires to a usb and then connecting the usb to the usb port in the front, but I get a message that says the usb has reached its maximum power output and that I must disconnect one of the devices.

????

Could the wires be soldered straight to the motherboard somehow?

OK I fixed it.

I was almost certain my usb Idea would work so I gave it another shot. This time I left the gray cable out of the way and connected the black from the usb to the black from the ps3 and the red from the usb to the brown from ps3. Problem solved. Fan turns on when system turns on, there is no speed control but who cares.
