3 Pin male connectors?...

Today I received a case (NZXT phantom) and I was looking at the connectors to the fans, The fan ends are connected to a male 3 pin to make it longer but it doesn't have a female end, shouldn't they add that? Or do I need to buy them? Or am I being stupid and 3pin male connectors are on the motherboard. someone shed some light on my stupidity.

This is the end connectors so its, Fan>female>Male how do I connect it... I thought the connections were supposed to be female>Male on motherboard.

There is an onboard fan controller on the case, so those plug into that. Pity, you can't replace the fans with aftermarket if they have male ends.

Wait I think I know what your talking about, those plug into the fan controller and the fan controller cables runs to the PSU or motherboard am I wrong?

erm nvm, there is a molex connector comming out of the controller for power and the other females plugged into to control the fans? does that power the fans as well... im so confused, this is my first time dealing with a fan controller, I always though you just plug it in and go..
