    There is a female and a male version.

    They come directly from the power supply, if you need a 4 pin molex to power the LEDs, you'll need to find a spare molex connector coming out of your power supply.

    Before doing this, unplug the pc, and touch an unpainted part of the case :)

    2 questions: how do i know if the female molex is 12v ? and what do i need to do if i dont have spare molex?
  3. They are all the same. You shouldn't have to worry. Most decent power supplies(guessing yours is since it is in what I figure is a non oem windowed case you are adding led track lighting to) have plenty of spare molex connectors.
