4pin cpu power motherboard socket fried/HELP

So the 4 pin female cpu power socket is fried on my M3N78 Pro motherboard ... I managed to desolder it without too much trouble. I would like to find a replacement spare part and solder it .... hopefully fixing my motherboard in the process.... the other option would be to solder the power cables directly to the motherboard.  

 

These methods certainly have the danger of permanently damaging the rest of the board but can they damage any other components such as the cpu, ... etc?

Do you think it would be worth the risk or better to buy a replacement motherboard? #I'mpoorlol 

 

I meant I will try to find the spare part ... probably from an old motherboard somewhere....

I'd probably just do a repair as you would.  Buy a CPU power extension cable and just cut it + solder the wires direct to the board.  Done deal.

That board is pretty old, but soldering on a new EPS connector is easy enough since you already did remove the old one, but make sure you didn't cause any shorts in the board doing it. I would personally look at Ryzen 3 and a cheap non overcloking board and some bog standard 4GB DDR4 modules if you can afford it. 

 

Yours faithfully

Usually there is a reason why there is a little supernovae on the mobo that let things melt. Just changing the crispy parts may not safe you from more damage...
