Faulty fan plug on logic board
I have an iMac 27-inch late 2012 model, which has recently transpired its extended apple care protection plan.
I have an issue with the cooling system, and thought the problem was with the cooling fan itself.
However, the local authorised repairer has assessed the problem is a faulty fan plug on the logic board. Their solution was to purchase and install a replacement logic board.
My question is whether there is a simpler, lower-cost solution to fix the fan plug? I'm not convinced paying $1000+ to replace the logic board on an aging desktop is the best investment.
Any advice or help would be appreciated.

Contact Apple directly, if it is only just out of AppleCare thet might come to the party
