Having problem with fan connector

Hello guys,

My motherboard is a Gigabyte H87-HD3.
The fans in my case are molex, so they were running 100%.
I bought these from Amazon. But im so confused.
Where do the plug in ECT.
I have a feeling that i bought the wrong product.....

You need a Molex to FEMALE rather than the male that you have.

Something like this:

Were running 100% sounds like you want it past tense but adding those adapters will still only allow fans at full 12v. I hope that's what you wanted if not then you want some of these or a fan controller.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Phobya-Speed...5v+fan+adapter you want something like this, you plug in your fan and then the other end in the molex Cable, there are 5v,7v that are the most common ones.

I use this one ModMyToys 4-Pin Power Distribution PCB - 8-Way Block Products Model: MMT-PCB-4-83 [MMT-PCB-4-83] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come hooked up to my psu, and then I use 5v adapter plugged into it
