System Fan isn't working

Diiifferent

Hi guys, I got my PC assembled finally, but my system fans do not work. I have a semi modular power supply, but whenever I plug the fans into the power supply (there are two fans), the computer doesn't turn on. But when the cord is not connected to the power supply, it turns on and everything works great. I've gamed with it before like that, but I kept the side panels off of the case and the CPU temps got around 80 Degrees Celsius. Anyone have any recommendations on what I should do? Thanks.

The case fans that came with my case.

Case fans plug into the motherboard, not the power supply itself.

I mean how are they powered? Molex, 3 pin or 4 pin?
