    How did that happen?!

    Been a long time since I opened my ps3, and it was a phat. So I think you have two options

    1) Rip the socket from the wire of the fan and solder the wires directly to the motherboard.
    2) Unsolder the socket from the motherboard and solder in a new one.

    If you have an old graphics card, or some other component with a similar socket, you should be able to remove it from that and solder that on.
