    OK, exactly what broke off? Attached is a picture of kk connectors which I guess are what you are describing. Did the connectors just break, OR, did the wires break also?

    The only place I know you could get complete new wiring assemblies would be from the case manufacturer, if they have them for sale.

    If just the connectors broke, you can get new connectors here;

    http://www.action-electronics.com/molex.htm

    scroll down the page and you would need a pack of the BLS-2 (you have to buy a pack of 50 but they are cheap). If either of the connectors are 3 pin you would also need a pack of part # BLS-3.

    If the ends of the wires broke off you would also need a pack of pins part # BLS-PIN/F and a crimper Part # PHT-DS-STMP

    If you have a repair shop near you they should be able to replace the ends for you if the wires are broken off at the pins. Unless you do a lot of these on a regular basis kk connectors are a little tricky to crimp, and I suggest that you let a shop crimp on the new pins for the connectors, because if they are not crimped correctly the pins will not stay in the connectors.
