Molex adapter

I'm planning on building this build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/xOCk and i want to install 2 120mm fans to the front. the fans i selected are good but the reviews state that the package does not come with molex adapters which is what i think my PSU uses. instead the fans use a 3mm plug which i hear there are adapter for but i don't know where or how to find one that fits the cables on my PSU so i was wondering if some one with knowledge on this stuff could help me out.

  1. hello... those Fans have a motherboard connector and are intended to plug into the SYSfan headers... and an adaptor would be a waste of $$$.
    if you search for 120mm there will be plenty of choices with a standard 4-pin molex that you want... direct connection will result in full speed operation only.

    most Motherboards are capable of multi-speed operation/control... but require a 4 wire/pin PWM connector similar to what your SYSfan header is.

    does my motherboard have ports for the fans?
