He thought he was going to be chaining molex, but from what I understand his fans are not molex plugs causing some confusion.

The male end on your mobo/fan controller will be 3-4 brass/gold color pins sticking up into the air. The plugs are "idiot" proof, only fit on ONE way. 3-4 pin plugs are forwards-backwards compatible...just to be clear, a 4pin fan pulg is not the same as a 4 pn MOLEX. 4 pin fan is small. hope this helps

Forgot to mention, you can get extender's to lengthen cables, Y cables to add more than one fan to a plug(do your homework first..can shot stuff out),and 3-4pin fan plug to molex adapters. google search any of those names to see what they look like
WOW thanks so much!!! sooo

Regardless that my fans are 4 pin (NO MOLEX) i can still put them into a 3 pin FC?
BTW I researched that this is possible on the motherboard (3 pin on mobo 4 pin fan)
only thing is that the 4th pin makes me controll the fan on the motherboard. (NEVERMIND)

Another option would be to use a fan controller like I do. you can get the cheap and no thrills, or go fancy shamcy touch screen yata yata yata.
