Solved Antec 300 case fan Q's. Molex, 3-pin? Tags: Power Supplies Antec Fan Cases Components Product Last response: May 10, 2012 12:21 AM in Components Share Azok May 9, 2012 5:09:28 PM So I bought an Antec 300 Illusion case a long time ago and originally read that I needed http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 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?

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.
