Default Chassis Fan Monitoring Cable?

Hey,

I have a Coolermaster Cenutiron 5 case and noticed that neither of my fan's have 3 pin connectors so that i can hook them up to my mobo for monitoring. However, they both have power connectors.

Is there anything i can do to split the power connector so that one wire can connect to the PSU and the other can turn into a 3 pin connector for fan monitoring?

Any ideas?

If such an adapter exists, where can i find one? I've searched newegg and couldn't find anything.

Thanks

Here's what I'd buy.

VANTEC Sliver Fan Controller

You hook all of your fans to it and adjust it yourself from the front of your PC.

Well, those motherboard connections supply a certain amount of power. When you start hooking up 2 fans, you're gonna screw with how much power it puts out and the fans recieve. I don't think it'll be a smooth transition.
