Well, I did the cardinal sin. I was disassembling my late 2012 mini to add a SSHD and bumped the fan connector and broke it off the logic board. Are these available to purchase anywhere and replace? I still can't believe I did that. I have worked on laptops for years and at one time carried certifications to work on Toshiba and HP laptops and did that for a living. Just got a little clumsy... Anywhoo, I am trying to come up with a way to solder the fan leads directly to the board, but it looks like the foil layer is starting to peel, so if I can actually get the wires anchored to the board and can solder it, I don't know for sure if it will even work. So as a last resort, since I've already damaged the board and I can't do it any worse, I'll try to solder the fan leads directly to the board. If that doesn't work, is there a source for these, or might I need to wait a year until the next models come out, this thing goes out of warranty and there are some refurbs or replacements on the market?
