Where can i get these connectors from?

Hey guys, do any of you know the real name/product code for these 3-Pin female fan connector blocks:

http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/acatalog/info_1959.html

I desperately need some with pins, but searching sites like RS or Farnell for them is like looking for a needle in a haystack

So its not the male connector that fits into it that you're after? It's exactly the same but with pins sticking out?

Is that what you want?

Nah its the female one just like in the link (except Kustom don't have stock) + the little little bits of metal that go inside.

Basically I want to make my own fan cables out of coloured wire, rather than sleeving the cables.

Not really, and I'd still need the plastic casing

I`d phone em first, cos I done a search on their site and only came up with one of those extension thingies. I busted into the store in cardiff and happened to see them whilst looking for something else, they had pins.

Problem is tho, when u search Maplins u think u know what they`re gonna call something and u`r way off.

The male versions were called 3 pole pcb mount connectors or something..
