For the 4 pins fan connectors and the 3pin fan controller connector you could just put and join the yellow and black wires

I found this fan/light controller.

http://www.casetech.co.uk/product_in...roducts_id/983

It recommends tto be used with this:

http://www.techniz.co.uk/modules.php...wcontent&id=42

So i may buy these two products together and i'll know it's safe to use them.

I agree because you know it's safe but there may be other, cheaper products which can do the same thing. Manufacturer's just want you to buy their products.

A molex has pin1-5v pin2-Ground pin3-Ground pin4-12v

For a normal fan you only use pin3-Ground & pin4-12v The Rpm monitoring cable is seperate and normally just plugs in you motherboard
