Need help QUICK!!!

Dumb question but here goes. So im setting up my rig now and I'm connecting all the fans. I got the Zalman ZM-MFC1 Plus fan controllers and a few Scythe fans. Do I still connect the fans to the 4 pin molex connectors for power?

I don't have a fan controller but I suppose the fans plug into the fan controller using the 3 pin connectors, since the fan controller plugs into the psu (does it?) that gives it power..

I dunno

You want to control the fans from the Zalman unit don't you? If so, you need to connect the fans to the 3-pin male connectors on the Zalman fan controller. The Zalman should have its own 4-pin molex for power so connect that to one of your spare 4-pin molex connectors from your PSU.
