I am building a new computer and have run into a sort of problem with the molex connectors from my fans and my power supply. The fans and the Power supply cables both have female connectors and I need some sort of adapter. I have tried to find male to male adapters, but those are impossible to find. Any info on what route to go to solve this problem will be greatly appreciated.

Case: Coolermaster storm sniper with stock fans
Mobo: Asus Crosshair III
Cpu: Amd Phenom II X4 955
Graphics: XFX 8800 GTX
Hd: Seagate 500 gb
PSU: Tagan ITZ 700W

I appreciate it.

Which fans? It is pretty normal for the CPU fan and rear case fan to have female connectors as there are normally male headers on the mobo for them to plug in to.

I am looking at a pic of that PSU, and it looks like it has 6 molex plugs (male) on it. Plugs come from the PSU, sockets are on the components.

The board does have 6 case fan headers as well.

An adapter is not needed. The fans have both types of connectors.
