NZXT Phantom 410 Fan Connector Help (weird pins i cannot figure out)

Hello all,

I am trying to connect my phantom 410 pre installed fans but i am extremely confused.

There is this


The right one is from the case(only 3 pins in molex ??) and the left one is from the psu.Should i connect these 2 together ??

And the other 4 (not the molex)


They are 2 pins(make) and so they cannot go into the motherboard where exactly do they go ? or they just extra to connect to if i get more fans ??

Please Please Please help guys...thanks

  1. Hi johnk_47
    you can connect the two molex's together ( the 4pin from your PSU to the 3pin from your case )
    the missing wire is one of the two black ground wires

    the other smaller plugs are for fans

  3. the molex just plug it into a 4pin molex on your psu this is to power your fan controller , the other small leads hook up to your fans

    i think they are already connected in the back mate....there are 3 pins coming out of the fans that are connected to wires like these ...... in the back...already plugged in ........thats so now are these extra bro ?
  5. If they are coming from the fan controller they would have to be

    ya they are from the fan controller.....
  7. Best answer
    if the installed case fans are already hooked up to the fan controller then they must be spare cables for additional fans

    So powering up the molex should be enough to run the case fans rite ?
  9. yes that is what it's for to power the fan controller
  10. So the molex powers the three fans that are pre installed in the case? I don't have to plug those four 2pin connectors to the motherboard in fan slots?
