Default Adaptors for Antec 900 Fans

I have an Antec 900 case, and the 4 case fans that come built in are all powered through 4 pin molex plugs (2sided male or female). This is all well and good, but creates a problem when I want to power them through my fan controller, which takes standard 3pin fan plugs.

I'm finding it hard to find simple molex-fan adaptors anywhere. Do they generally exist? Can anyone think of an alternative method?
Thanks for any help!

well, its the same thing- its just wires soldered to pins, so it will work either way. Where did you see them?

Thats really kind of you, but don't worry about it- you might find you need them one day. The fact that they exist is a good thing, it means I'll be able to find them somewhere. I was also considering cannabalising some leads that I don't need for that purpose.

Anyway thanks again for the offer!

lol wish I had them too! No, the replacement GPU is arriving tomorrow, so fingers crossed, I'll have all kinds of goodies then! Although I am a bit lacking in games that will really test it- it will have to be demos instead (typical- spend 1000 on a computer and then you have to spend another 100 just to justify the expense!)
It'll be Supreme commander, and Bioshock demos, and X3 Reunion to start with. Prolly some other demos- downloaded them at work, and are on my external HD there, so can't really remember. Plus 3dMark06- is the free download any good?
