Molex Fan Adapter Problems?!
 
Okay, so I have ordered a 'BitFenix Molex to 3 x 3-Pin Fan Adapter' because I heard somewhere that it allows me to have more fans in my computer running at once?..
So now I have it I have no idea on how to use it, where to plug it in for example.

I can see the 3 bits for my fans to plug into, but which I think is the Molex part, the big block thing, I have no idea what its for and I can't find anywhere for it to plug into on my motherboard.. Does it even go on a motherboard?!

Please help?
Thanks!

It plugs into one of the cables from your power supply. Nothing at all to do with your motherboard.

This is the molex cable:

You probably should've looked into it a bit before just buying something on a whim.

Did you find the molex connector on the PSU?
