Default Need to convert fan pins

I have this fan controller (says to connect 3 pin)
NZXT Sentry LX LCD Fan Controller at TigerDirect.com


my fans that come with this case are 4 pin
Apevia Black/Black X-Plorer ATX Mid-Tower Case with Clear Side, Fan Controller, Front USB and Firewire Port at TigerDirect.com


No clue if it's male or female connections (you'll hafta figure that out)

I found this 4pin to 3pin Wire Adapter: CrazyPC Computers not sure if it's what I'm looking for to solve the issue.

That is exactly what you need. Your fans are molex cabled. Fan cables are always female. On the motherboard or PCB, it is male.
