Default molex to 3 pin

i just brought a fan controller of ebay but just realised it can only take 3pin fans, only my zalman is 3 pin, the rest of my fans use molex connectors, can you possibly convert them to 3pin?

Yeah, they sell 3 pin to Molex adapters. Search Newegg or something. I'd find the link for you but I gotta run, sorry.

Get some 3 pin connectors at an electronics store, and replace the molex connectors with the 3 pin connectors. A soldering iron sometimes helps.

Or you can get new fans.

*edit*
something like this:
3 Pin Fan Connector (5 pack) - 3 Pin Tail Kit

You mean, this?
6" 3-Pin to 4-Pin Adapter

or this?
12" 4-Pin to 3-Pin Adapter

You mean you wanted a 4 pin Molex connector with a 3 pin FAN connector?

i want to connect a molex fan to a fan controller which only has 3pin headers, therefore i need to convert two of my molex fans to 3pin. so that second one you gave me was right but ive decided to just buy some 3pin fans
