How to power case fans (Antec 300 Illusion, CORSAIR TX750 V2)
I'm in the process of building my first computer, and I'm not sure how to power the case fans.
I have the Antec 300 Illusion case, CORSAIR TX750 V2 power supply, and ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 motherboard.
The case has 4 fans, but the connectors don't seem to be compatible with the power supply. I've tried connecting them to different places on the motherboard, but I can't seem to find a combination where they all work.
The motherboard ports are labelled CHA FAN2, CHA FAN3, CPU FAN2, PWR FAN1.
Any help is appreciated

You have two fan connectors on the board, the other two connect to the PSU using molex/peripheral to fan adapters!
The two on the board are the CHA FAN connectors I'm assuming?
Also could you link me to the adapter? Thanks
EDIT: The CHA FAN2 port seems to power any fan that I attach to it, but the CHA FAN3 port doesnt. Is my hardware defective?
Hm 3 pin to molex connectors should already be included, those connectors go to your mobo.
Antec 300 ( Illusion ) fans use 4 pin pass thru connectors ( Molex ) and do not come with any sort of adapter. How are you connecting them to the motherboard ? You can see 3 of the 4 connectors in this shot
