Antec 300 case fan Q's. Molex, 3-pin?

So I bought an Antec 300 Illusion case a long time ago and originally read that I needed to power the fans.

But now I know more and realized that the 4-pins it comes with goes straight to the PSU...

And also don't female 3-pins go into the mobo, not male 3-pins?

    Why do you need an adaptor to power the fans?
  2. you just connect the fans to the PSU

    The fans that come in with the case only plug directly into a molex connetor from the PSU.

    That adapter you listed won't work in your case. It's meant to power a fan with only a 3-pin plug into a molex 4-pin power connector.

    If you want to power the fan from the motherboard, get different fans. Most come with a 3-pin connector that plugs into the mobo, and includes a 3-pin to 4-pin adapter to plug into molex from PSU.
