B/C my psu doesn't come with a 'male' molex connector for the led strip. It's probably such an easy answer i'm just new to this. Do I connect the 12v input to my psu but then that would leave the female led strip not connected to anything?
I'm not getting you.... what is the other part of the 2 ?
You have this doohickey hanging there with a label on it that says LED strip.... you don't wanna be thinking about connecting it to your PSU. It is already powered.
If the LED lights are on in your case, then the LED switch already has power coming to it. If you connect that to your PSU, it will be "powered" from both ends .... why would you want to do that ? When you buy an LED strip, you will need to put a connector on the end of it.... that is what you will connect to that Molex.

Things you'll need (assuming ya don't have a crimping tool):
(1) LED Strip - http://www.amazon.com/LED-Outlets-Meter-Black-Waterproof-Flexible/dp/B00E9N7SX6
(1) Molex Connector - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/1926/ele-94/FrozenCPU_ConnectRight_Standard_4-pin_Male_Connector_-_Black.html?tl=g51c387s999
(2) Pre-selleved Molex Wire- http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16208/wir-29/ModSmart_Kobra_SS_Pre-Sleeved_Molex_Male_to_Female_Extension_Wire_-_16_-_Black_WIRE-M16MF-BK.html?tl=g2c551s1693
Use the male end of the wire in the connector and solder the female end of the wire to ya LED strip (cut off) connector before soldering .
If ya already equipped for sleeving, then gran the connector and use ya own sleeving and wires.
Looks like the 290 wasn't the only thing that has a huge effect on market prices. Seems the Enthoo made a splash too.... last time I looked, the 900D was $350 .... now $270
