I'm in the process of putting my system together and ran in to a slight snag. I have four extra case fans with 3 pin connectors that attach to the motherboard. However, my motherboard doesn't have enough ports. I noticed that the fans that came installed in the case had a device on them that converted them from the 3 pin motherboard connection to the 4 pin power supply connection. What are the cables/converters called?

3-pin fan to four-pin power connectors? If you pay four bucks, you are probably being overcharged. You should be able to get something like this: at any computer store.
