Question So, were are some of those 3 pin to molex connectors for fans?

The Corsair Obsidian only has small little plugs on their fans that won't go into a psu. I have some of the connectors needed, but they're crap and I fear they will brake or something.

What are they called and where should I buy some

Thanks.

A molex to 3-pin adaptor? Something like this, I suppose. Or you can just plug them into your motherboard.

Most have 3 of them, usually 2 are on the bottom I think. Check your manual.

As JMCD stated..your Board should have a bunch of 3 Pin Fan Headers scattered about....otherwise NCIX has just about any Cable you could imagine..

You mean you don't have a ton lying around? I guess I buy too many fans

And you'd think Corsair would of included some.

Your board should have at worst 2x.

You can get some cheap adapters at a local computer store.
