On mine, each fan has a plugin for the power supply. One is a female connector and one is a male connector. You plug them both into the power supply. You can also make them run together by plugging one end (male for example) into the power supply, and the female into the male on another fan, and on the other fan the female into the male of the power supply. You can make the chain go as far as you want too. Mine went from the power supply to the top fan, to the rear fan, to the other rear fan, to the side fan, to the front fan, to the fan controller, to the power supply. That way, the controller controls all 5 fans.
Is there any chance you could post a picture. I still don't completely understand. Aren't the power supply connectors female. And the fans, male. So once you connect one, how do you connect another up to the same one? I just can't picture it, lol.
Okay... try to follow this. My case had two connectors dealing with voltage. They were just yellow and black. One was a male connector and one was a female conenctor. On the male connector it has printed:
The print on the female connector is smudged for me... but I'll type what I can see:
MAX 1.? A
Okay. Now I plugged the input (male) into the female power supply and the output (female) into one fan. Then I made the chain of fans by linking the female part of the fan wire to the male part of the next fan and so on. Should be good to go I think.
fan number = fan number (1, 2, 3, 4, or 5)
power supply = PS
input = I
output = O
wire = -
female connector = E
male connector = :
