Need another place to plug in a fan....

I currently have 3 fans pluged in my computer with a 4th that id like to put in but no where to put it. My motherboard only has 3 slots for fans (or 4 if you cant the one for the cpu fan) the fan im trying to put in is this one

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835209011

its got the 3 pin for the motherboard and 4 pin molex connector i beleive its called. I have no idea where i could plug in the the molex connector tho. i have a couple items that came with my computer that plug into my atx power connectors and than allow for a molex connection but none of those are open in my computer. So im kinda at a loss here and dont know what to do. any help would be appreciated

  1. you can daisy chain molex connectors from your psu
  2. A well configured system only needs one case cooling fan...a 120 mm exhaust fan in the rear.

  3. what do you mean daisy chain?

    and my computer doesnt really have the best of airflow it seems. I mainly cant seem to keep my crossfire 5770s cool enough.

    daisy chaining molex connectors just means connecting a bunch of them off of the same molex connector from the psu.

    A well structured and inciteful argument for watercooling there from P4nz3r,
    but if we consider some people cant get £5 together for a fan, let alone a watercooling set up or that they cant be on with the upkeep it requires, then the argument falls apart.

    Sounds like you need something from this page,
