Default Quick case question

For my build I will be using an Antec 900 and a DFI Lanparty P45 mobo. I was wondering if the fans on the case will plug in to my motherboard or plug directly into my power supply.

I have no experience with the Antec 900 but from the looks of it and from reading customer reviews on newegg, it appears that they only have molex connectors which would plug into the power supply. Most cases have this same setup, if anyone has this case and knows otherwise, then please correct me.

Antec 900 fans can only be plugged into the PSU(an adapter can possibly be used), they're tri speed so instead of the motherboard selecting the speed, you can do it yourself although it requires taking off the cover

okay thanks but now that leads into another question i have. I will be getting the Corsair 620HX PSU and it is modular btw. Will I have enough connections on my power supply for all of my hardware plus the case fans?

you can connect all the fan cables, and have them connected to 1 connection.

Double post, weird.

It said that I could not post for 30 secs, when it was my first post of the day.
