ok so ive got everything for my first custom built pc and we have a family friend that we go to, to do with pc's phones etc....
so anyway i have the Zalman Z11 plus case with blue led fans, the family friend says that there is nowhere for the Led fans to be plugged in as the normal fans can.

can anyone confirm that there is no possible way for all the fans to be connected or am i able to do so ?

i have -
*Zalman Z11 Plus Case
*Asus H87M-E micro ATX motherboard
*Corsair RM750 Fully Modular PSU
*Asus GTX 760
*Intel i5 4670 (using the stock fan)
*WD 500gb Caviar Blue hard drive

The Z11 Plus comes with 5 fans, the front top and rear are 3-pin, and the 2 side fans are Molex. That motherboard only has 2 chassis fans hookups. What he can do is get a splitter and plug 2 of the LED fans into a single motherboard connector. The power supply will have the molex connectors for the 2 side fans. This way you can hook up 4 fans total immediately.

Whichever one you want to leave out. I would definitely leave the front one plugged in, and whatever one in the back you want. If you want the LED, plug that one in :)  you'll have plenty of airflow that way :)

All my visible fans are LED, with the 2 in the side vents being the stock non-LED ones

ive just ordered the y splitter cable so i think what im going to do is plug the side fans to the psu as normal and then use the 2 led fans with the splitter and leave out the non led one at the back, i have my psu fan up so it should be alright then :-)

If you're only using the 2 fans, there's no need for a splitter. I would flip the power supply around so it is intaking air from outside the case.
