Solder 3 wires to the 3 Points on the Backside of the Mainboard. The 3 Points are right under the Fan Connector on the other side.
Use some Tape to fix the wires on the Board. As you can see, i used the gap on the right to get the wires to the other side.
This is the upper side of the Mainboard, you can/should also use some Tape to fix the position of the wires. Also you can see, i glued the connector back on the board (no electrical connection).
