Case fan cables

Last response: in Systems

My case's fans have male 3-pin power connectors that look like this...

I'm unable to find a place on the motherboard to plug them into. All the plug-ins on the motherboard are also male. Any help is appreciated.

Are you certain the connectors on the fans are male? Every fan I've seen has either female 3-pin, female 4-pin (PWM fans), or male 4-pin molex (hard drive/CD/DVD drive power) connectors.

What is the specific model of the fans?

Is it possible you are confusing those connectors for the ones attached to the built-in fan controller in your case? The fan controller would use male connectors.
