    with a female 3 pin plug and 2 4 pin molexes so i can link the fan into parallel circuit.

    or can i just use this:
    <a href='http://www.heatsinkstore.com/4to3ad.html]http://www.heatsinkstore.com/4to3ad.html

    also with female 3 pin plug, but only has 2 wires and 1 4 pin molex.

    do i need to get the one with 2 4 pin molexes or the one from svc (only 1 molex).

    i really need to know this. thanks

    Oh c&#39;mon, Abu.
    This is a silly question.

    Do you need the power to "pass thru" (surprise&#33; that&#39;s what the two Molex version is called) and continue on to another component or does your power line end with the fan?

    Sheesh....

    so i need to get the 1 with 2 molexes?

    hey man, i&#39;m just a dumb 15 yr old.

    but i did get the part rite bout the female 3 pin plug thing rite?

    another thing: where could i find the adapters i need? the place i got the pic from sells them for &#036;1.5. that&#39;s kinda expensive, isn&#39;t it?

    Hello&#33;

    Knock,knock, is Abu home?

    How do you plan on tapping into your power cables?

    Are they all tied up going to different things?
    Hark...then get the first adaptor.

    Oops, theres an unused one just dangling around...get the second one.

    Yes, you are correct about the 3-pin part.

    Score =50%.

    But Abu plays well with others.

    so i don&#39;t need 2 4 pin molexes?

    where&#39;s the cheapest place i can get the adapters that have 2 4 pin molexes?

    YOU TELL US&#33; its a simple question.

    if u have spare molexs on your power supply then you cna get teh second but if you have none or only one or two left i would ge tthe passthrough one you you can hook up more fans to teh one or to hook up another device.
