Im planning on building http://pcpartpicker.com/p/xG0T and im wondering if my PSU has ports for the front panel case fans i want to use or if i have to buy an adapter and if so which adapter should i get? also are these 2 120mm fans and the 1 80mm fan in the back enough to cool my case?

The fans have 3-pin connectors built to be plugged into a fan controller or the motherboard.

If you need an adapter because your motherboard doesn't have enough connectors - you'll be looking at a '3-pin to molex' adapter. (fan -> 3-pin -> molex -> psu)

Cooling should be sufficient.

Yep. That's what you're looking for.

Only the front bay fans listed use 3 pins and because you only have two of them - you'll only need one adapter.
