How to plug in fans in psu

I have a motherboard with only one fan connector but i want to add more fans to my system. I've heard that you can plug in fans in your psu. This might sound dumb but from what i've seen, fans have the female(end with holes) connector and they plug in to the male(end with the pins) connector on a motherboard or psu. All I see on my psu are 3-pin and molex female connectors. How would i plug in a fan into my psu?

    Sorry clicked on solved by accident. That does not really answer my question
  3. Plug the molex from fan into molex to your PSU. The easiest way to controll a lot of fans is to buy a fan controller.

    Sorry, but what i've seen is fans have 3-pin female connectors and my psu has 3-pin and molex female connectors. So how would i plug a fan in the psu. Is there an adapter?
