Plugging the fan back in is a huge pain in the ass, do you have a tip for that?

I screwed up and my fan cable ZIF socket lifted out. I destroyed it trying to solder it back on. Can I buy a replacement?

This is actually an interesting question. I was looking into this issue and watched most of your video and the fan did not spin up and everything was quiet and perfect. If I watch a youtube video, it spins up like crazy. Any suggestions?

I broke the latch on the ZIF connector. Brittle plastic. :-( What can I do to get the new fan to receive power?
