Default Fan question

I'm building a new system, I have the Antec P182 Case, it comes with 3 120mm fans, all powered by Molex cables, my question is, how should I connect them?

Temporarily I have one molex cable from the PSU, first molex has 2 of the fans, second molex has my DVD burner and the third has the last fan.

Should I have one molex for each fan or is it fine like that?

Oh that case. Get an extra 3pin to 4pin Molex connector from Frys or something. I'm sure they should sell it. Or from SVC, like this. 12" Dual 3-Pin to 4-Pin Adapter

My location kinda limits my store choices a lot...


The fans are all 4 pin molex anyway, so they fit right in.

My question was if it's safe to have 3 molexes connected together, since the fan molexes have male and female molex.
