Default I need a 3-Pin male to 2-Pin female Power LED Adapter

Where can I find one. My board has a two pin led and my case has a 3 pin female plug. I can't find one. Anyone know where I can get one.

Someone gave me an idea that will be easy and free. Just move the wire to the middle hole and hang the last hole over the end. Or just cut the plug in two and put them on the male ends. They will hang over just a little but they will work.

Done this a few times now, like you said, chop plug in half and connect it that way.
I don't recommend moving one of the wires to the middle hole though, the clip that keeps the wire in in the plug must be pushed in to release it. When reinserted again, the clip often stays bent down & so wire keeps popping out.

No problem. The clip stayed like a charm. Works great.
