    Very likely the small 4-pin female connectors are power supply connectors for a 3½" floppy drive. I suspect this is a Y-adapter that has a 4-pin male Molex connector (to plug into a female power supply output) that splits into 2 female floppy connectors. Do not plug them into anything other than a floppy drive, and certainly not into the mobo.

    the one on the farthest on the right side

    says here in the description that

    "one adapter to convert one standard peripheral power connector into two floppy disk drive power connectors"

    this means i cannot use this to power case fans?
