Hi!

I recently bought a used 2011 Mac Mini (Server) and while tinkering with it (don't ask me why), I ripped off the mobo the fan's socket along with some of the soldering points.

-Pics to follow later today

It boots up and the display garbles up after less then 5 minutes.
What are my options?

Find someone that can do the fine solder work and reconnect the fan.
