Default Ummmm... fan question.

Some of you might have read about how the heatsink and fan I bought off of Newegg was a total piece of garbage so I decided to take the fan off and put it in my case. However I have run into a problem. I only have (2) 3 pin connectors on my mobo and I am using one for the fan on my heatsink and then the other is being used by another case fan. So... how do you people with like 5 or more casefans plug them all in? Can I get some adapter or something or how does this work?

There is a 3 pin to 4 pin convertor you can get so you can hook it up to a molex connector.

yep. or if your real tight and have a spare molex socket around you could just replace the 3 pin with the molex
