Are you sure you should be building a laptop cooler?

Molex connectors are the most commonly used connector in a computer, they're the large 4-pin connectors used by most drives, peripherals, and fans. Most fans you buy should come with a 3-pin fan-molex adapter, and if they don't you can buy them dirt-cheap.

Yes I know. But these fans were powered off the motherboard of my old Dell. This really isn't a laptop cooler it's kind of a ghetto system.

Alright let me explain. My laptop get's really hot when I play games. I want to take my old fan's that I have laying around and use them. I don't wanna put a USB plug on the end of the fan's because I don't have any port's open, so I wanna use my old psu. But I don't know how to connect the fan's to the psu.

Your old fans use a 3-pin connection. Your options are to either buy several molex to 3-pin adapters or to try and splice the red and black leads from the fans onto the red and black 12v leads going into a molex connector from your PSU. Personally, I would just buy the adapters.

Once you have the fans connected, you will need to look on the 20 or 24pin motherboard power connector, find the hole with a green wire leading into it, and use something like a paperclip to connect it to a hold with a black wire leading to it. That will start the PSU as if you hit the power button on the case.
