Hi,

I currently have an 80mm fan which has only a molex connector. (3 wires (yellow, red and black)

However, I would like to control its speed using one of the 3-pin (male) connector on the motherboard. (The one I want to use is labeled chassis-fan on the motherboard)

Currently, I have a 3-pin (female) connector (only the plastic plug).

What I would like to do is
1) remove the molex connector from the fan,
2) use those wires to connect them to my 3-pin (FEMALE) plastic connector
3) Connect my fan to the motherboard

I know this is a fickle thing to do.
Any ideas?

(I know I could just buy a molex to 3 pin(female) connector, but I want to impress myself hehehe)
Thanks!
