Those must be the jumpers they were the ones responsible for the connectors on your motherboard . If that had spark chances are the motherboard might be affected.
Advised contact the technical support if the warranty is still up but that might void the warranty if they asked why did you open it . If its out of warranty asked tech support for the part number and asked them to connect you to spare parts dept.

You will notice that replacing the fan is not specifically
mentioned, but it should be fairly easy.
Open the case as noted in the instructions, follow the power
wire from the fan to the motherboard, then unplug the connector from the
motherboard, and remove the assembly.
Some of the earlier fan shrouds just lift up and out, but
others have tabs to hold them in.
Regarding the fan, there might be two release levers
accessible from inside the case, but the one by the PSU can be hard to
It might easier to push the retaining tabs, in from outside,
using a small screwdriver, pen or whatever.
The installation of the new fan, is just a matter of fixing
the new one in place and connecting the cable.
Good luck, and do rate the solution if got help
