Most power supply fans are soldered in....

You could cut the wires from the old and wire the new one with the cut wires from the old one and cover in electrical tape....

If you do make sure to discharge capacitors (hold down power button for a 10-15 secs..).

Or you could buy LEDs and put it on the PSU near the fan vents...

It can be done you just need to find that size fan with the red led.

As long as you don't mind invalidating the warranty and having no comeback at all, should the psu fail, you can do whatever you like to it.
