I drilled some extra holes underneath the processor on the chassis, but when I unplugged the fan computer will not turn on. Anyone have any advice on how to fix this?

You need to build a small square wave oscillator circuit that emulates fan out signal.
I have heard of people cutting vanes off the fan to get around it.
Having said that I am not sure removing fan is wise.
