Hello novakcha;

Did the manual tell you what the connectors were for?
Did you trace the 3pin connectors back to the end? Where did they end up?

Not exactly a top-notch manual.

The 3pin connectors should trace back to your fans.
You probably have both the 3pin (motherboard) and 4pin molex (PSU cable) connectors for fans.
Using the 4pin molex will have the fan running at 100% (unless the fan has a switch).
Using the 3pin motherboard connector will let the motherboard handle the fan speed based on how you set up the motherboard cooling protocol/options.

Only 1 molex connector on your PSU?
Or only 1 molex cable came with the case?

Check the fans - they probably have molex connectors of their own.
Sometimes they're tucked away.

Check the fans - not the case - how do they get power?

i checked the fans too and they only have the 3 pin coming out of them

Best solution
