So I used 2 twist ties with metal, striped them on each side used it as extra wires to plugin the fan.
Anyways it works great but when I started the computer up! it loaded my windows xp accont and bam it turned off. The sound it made was tick!, I checked the wires again and turned it on and so far its worked great. My question is what make the tick sound and was it the wires tuching each other in the plugin on the motherboard

Yeah, it probably would have been that. A short circuit of some kind, and the PSU protected itself by switching off. Can't you put maybe celetape around each wire?

Never make them touch together. It usually will cause the PC to turn off. On the other hand, protect them with tape.

It would take a little while before all the charge reverses.
