    now one fan thats the fan at the top of the box

    has

    two 4-pin connectors (male and female) where do I connect these??

    Yes, plug it in there if you want the PSU to regulate your fan speeds ( I'm thinking you have an Antec PSU?).
    If you'd prefer the fan to run all the time, just daisy chain it into a regular +12v cable.

    It supplies power to all the widgets and thingies that the ATX connector doesn't...just plug the damn thing in.

    I guess the fan power connector similar to this:



    One side connects to the power supply and that leaves the other end available to connect other devices. Yes you can leave it doing nothing.

    Like VB said yes you can hook up fans to those connectors from your psu if the fans have em, I know whith my intake fan I hooked it up one of those, the exhaust hooked up to the mobo.

    Adster!

    Ontopic:
    The male is just another connector, in case you need another port to connect a female to, and you are short on power cable from the PSU.

    Off topic and the real reason for posting:
    How ya doin?

    Cheers,
