My case fans have Molex fan adapter pre installed to Female 3 pin fan connecters, what purpose does the Molex fan header serve? does it power the LED, can i not have LED without it?

Some prefer to have no additional load placed on the mobo and don't mind running the fan(s) at full speed. Others do not have a choice, there are insufficient amount of headers on the mobo and/or the connectors do not reach the headers.
