Hi everyone.

So basically I bought this fan:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EZcool-140mm-Fan-Super-Silent...

It comes uses standard 4 pin molex.

I have a NZXT Phantom full tower case, I bought that as an intake fan, if I use molex power, the LED will always be on, and I won't be able to use the fan controller.

So is this what I need to convert it to 3 pin? So that I can use it with my fan controller?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-Pin-Molex-male-female-3-Pin...

There's also this which is cheaper, so I'm wondering if it does the same thing?

Thanks!

Sure, on the 2nd link.

But are you sure it comes with a Molex plug only? Most fans come with an adapter to turn the 3-pin (to motherboard or fan controller) to a 4-pin Molex (to power supply).

You are going the other way: 4-to-3.

So both of the adapters in the links are fine?

It doesn't state if it includes it, I'm not going to wait for if to come then order an adapter, I wanna be able to get it all set up at once.
