Hi!
No this thread is not about me asking you what to do each step of the way :p 
The problem is that I will most likely be buying my PC components tomorrow so time is of the essence! :??: 
Heres the build list pretty much sorted so far...

-Sharkoon T9 Value Gaming Case Black with Green LED Fans - (No PSU) - £47.98
- http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/cases/cas...

-AMD Black Edition - AMD Phenom II X4 3.4 GHz Processor - £72.65
- http://www.waeplus.co.uk/product/282731/AMD-Phenom-II-X...

-Zalman CNPS9900 NT Tunnel Flower CPU Cooler - £36.49
- http://www.eclipsecomputers.com/product.aspx?code=HFZ-C...

-Sapphire Radeon HD7770 Graphics Card (1GB, GDDR5) - £97.00
- http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00761YFGQ/ref=asc_df_B00761...

-ASRock Socket AM3+/AMD 770/DDR3/S/ATA 600/ATX - £51.10
- http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/32240374/874233470/ASRock...$ja=tsid%3a11518%7ccat%3a32240374%7cprd%3a32240374

-CORSAIR BUILDER SERIES CX600 V2 PC POWER UNIT - 600W
- £49.36 - http://www.waeplus.co.uk/product/301137/CORSAIR-Builder...

-RAM
- http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MY... - £35.99

All total: £390.66

The problem is that I am only spending up to £400 at the most, but my troubles are whether the motherboard I am buying will support all three case fans of my case including the CPU fan!
Things my motherboard should have (if you suggest any :p ):
-Support for up to 16gb RAM (DDR3 obviously :D )
-At least 1-2 USB 3.0 ports
-MUST BE £50 OR UNDER
-MUST HAVE SUPPORT OF ALL THREE CASE FANS <--- I have to give that ALOT of notice :D 
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me here, it is my first build and I don't want to have to be buying more parts than needed :S

I will appreciate any answers greatly as long as they are not something silly :p 
Thank you sooooo much for looking!
Dan.

I plug all my case fans in to the molex connectors on the PSU

that mb only has 2 chasis fan header and a cpu header.

Not sure why you wouldn't want to just plug the case fans straight into the PSU, they should be on 100% anyway, no point to adjusting the speed.

Ok, can I ask where I would find one of these molex cables? Or does one come with the PSU?
Seen as its my first time, I guess I'll have to find a tutorial on this too :p 
Thanks for both of your replies jerreddredd and Mastashake15 it is very appreciated :) 
If I have any other questions I will most likely be back ;) 
Thanks guys!

molex are on the PSU. most case fans are molex and have an adapter for the 3/4 mb connection or vice versa.

this mb is solid and has enough fan headers, but its £65.99 inc VAT
