Fan burnt chip FB4001 on motherboard

I was hoping someone can help me find a supplier for microchips and other components found on the PS3 Fat's Motherboard. I found a fried chip titled "FB4001" in the schematics manual. Since it fried I no longer have use of the fan. I am hoping to replace it, but i dont know of any suppliers.

Thanks for your help and support.

karacarm, if we are both looking at the same circuit board schematic, what you have there is Not a "fried chip". It is a ferrite bead (FB), which is in turn a component that is used as a filter to muffle unwanted interference in electronic circuits. Now it gets really interesting, there are literally thousands of those on here. Doing a search on the 1608 from the schematic cross reference to something like this and on digikey like that. You can also check with mouser.com and multiple other places. Hope this helps, good luck.
