Cable burnt plz help

Bought my Corsair 460x case second hand, seems the 2nd case fan has heated up? Can see the copper wire showing, can I replace the cable or do I need to replace the whole fan?

I am a first time builder...

I wold replace the whole fan since there obviously is some issue that overheated that wire enough to do that. I would not think LED's could even draw that much. Or was the wire pinched somewhere and shorting out? If that is the case you could try to replace the wire. I would personally just buy a new fan.

Thanks mate, I’ve ordered a new hd120..there’s two connections on the new fan? Does one go into the rgb supply labeled 2 in my photos and the other end into motherboard?

Yeah that looks dangerous not only for you, but also for you expensive components. New power supply please, and not the cheap garbage.
