Unhappy Fan died

Meh. crappy Tt LED fan just died in back of my computer becuase i was unplugging and replugging cables to make look neater and i pulled the control cable that locks in with the little arrow shaped things, my hand slipped and ripped cables out of head. plegh, didn't even hitem hard. tried alligning cables and pushing them into rubber wire casing they puled out of, but no luck, it ran at full speed even though hardcano was on lowest, any ideas on how to fix it? if not i have a $13 replacement fan in my wish list i'm too poor to buy, PM me for newegg ID if you're feeling particulary generous

Do you have an old power you can harvest for a fan?

If not, just downclock everything untill you can get that new fan.
