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=N82E168...

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

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.
