Case fans have 2 molex plugs

awkwardmoment

Hello,

I am trying to put together my first computer... All those wires are confusing me!

... but my main point of confusion at the moment is the two front fans which came included with my case. Unlike the other case fans I got (and installed), those front ones have 2 molex plugs each, one male and one female...

How do I plug those in??
Should both be plugged in or its just an additional plug in case you have something else to plug in nearby (and want to avoid running another cable from your power supply?

That's correct, they're like that so you can daisy chain a few together on one psu cable if convenient.

Oh good... maybe I am not as lost as I thought then.

Thanks for the reply!
