So, I just installed all myparts in my 500r, but I cannot find a plug to connect the front fans. I have a OCZ ZT psu. Does the molex from the case connect to a male molex, then connects to the PSU? and what about the 3 pin connect for the front fans?

Thats the only thing I have that is close to a 3 pin connect + molex.

In the picture is a 4 pin connector and the other side is a molex.

fuadm424, how did you mount the second rad to the HDD cage? Since the cage itself is threaded, the logistics are a bit confusing to me. Or I am just missing something.

Velcro thumb.gif I would have used double sided mounting tape, but that would get messy fast. I heard zipties also work, but I needed an easy way to put in the rad since it had to be taken out before installing the GPUs which are 1-2mm away.

Thanks! It was a lot of fun trying to figure out how to fit two 240 rads inside.

yep, the molex powers the fans and lights. that small connector is what powers the side panel fan.

Okay I figured out that the 3 pin connects to the side fan. For the molex, I do not have a male molex that came with my PSU, was it supposed to come with my PSU?

EDIT: Okay, So I disconnected the daisy wiring from both of the front fans and connected it to the mobo directly. All 3 fans are working, but only one of the LED lights are working from the 2 front fans.And also, the LED switch on/off is not working. Is this due to me not using the molex to plug all the fans directly to the PSU?

Your OCZ power supply came with 6 4-pin molex connectors, one of them you should use to connect the black molex that the fans are connected to. Then they are connected to the fan control and the LED switch and they should work.
The picture shows mine, with an additional fan control molex connected.

The molex that came with my psu is the same shape as the molex connector for the fans. They are both male.

The fan might be both male and female (on each end of the molex).

I dont see the female side of the molex to the front fans. So there's a male and/or female molex leading to the fans?

EDIT: damn i'm dumb. Its literally on the other side of the molex haha. Thanks guys.

EDIT2: Got my system up and running. How are my temps? http://i39.tinypic.com/14e2bdl.png
