Hey first i want to just say i love this website! It has a great community and everything! Well to the problem.. im new here and to computer building so bare with me im a total noob. So im building a pc and my PSU and MOBO only have 1 4-pin connectors and my case (corsair 400r) have three fans already installed and im planning to add two more fans but i have no idea how to give them power. I need to power my GPU(Sapphire hd radeon 6870) which needs two 4-pin connectors, my hard drive, pre-installed fans, DVD drive and two extra fans im planning to put in which all need 4 pin or 3pin connectors right? Ive searched up in the forums but i cant seem to really understand what they mean, all i keep reading is molex plugs. So please be detailed with your responses since im such a noob in this. Oh and heres my MOBO and PSU just in case.

I have the exact same case but none the less here are your PSU connectors

1 x Main connector (20+4 Pin)
1 x 4-Pin ATX 12V
2 x 8-Pin EPS 12V
8 x Peripheral (used for your 4-pin corsair fan connections)
8 x SATA
2 x Floppy
4 x PCI-E (used to connect to your AMD 6870)

your mobo 4-pin connector is for for CPU fan. it should also have 2-3 more 3-pin connectors for any after market fans you want to buy.

so you are all set
