The 4-pin connector fans have the capability of speed control when plugged into the appropriate motherboard fan headers. These headers will be marked 'Sys_fan' or 'Cha_fan'. The heatsink fan must be plugged into the header marked 'CPU_fan'.

The 2-pin fans can be connected directly to the Molex plug through an adapter cable that comes with the motherboard or PSU. Another option is to connect these fans to a fan speed controller.

Here is one example: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

There are other fan speed controllers available at Newegg and elsewhere.

The large 4-pin connector is generally known as the "molex connector" and plugs into the power cable coming from the PSU. Examine the PSU cables and you will see what I mean.

Also read the instructions that came with the PSU. Usually, these plugs go in only one way. Do not force anything.

Alright and the molex connectors powers the fans? I also have a molex connector with only 2 pins. I still plug it in the 4 pin on the PSU cable?

Thank you, and good luck with your new build. There are some nice guides in the 'New Build' section. And some good videos on YouTube.
