Unhappy Wires Ctd

I finaly managed to wire comp!... Now my only problem is the wires that are left over and don't seem to go anywhere - as in there isn't a socket shaped like that or I've used up all the others like it.
Also, on the fans, they have male 4 pin and female 4 pin, they both need connecting?

no on the fans that have both male and female, its so you can plug the power into the female portion and so that it doesn't take up a power connector it has the male part of it. That way you aren't losing a 4pin connector.
