LOL , I just got a new case and it came with two fans but when I went to test one out I noticed there is no female connection coming from my power supply. The only female connection I can find is the one on my other fan. I was wondering do I need to add two female connections (one for each fan) or what?

Maybe post a picture of your setup or something just please help , I'm not going to put my hardware in the new case until my fans are mounted and working.
I take it you have a fan that has both a male and a female plug on the end. All you have to do is plug them inline with something else. It's kinda like a pass through plug. You pull the female connector our of your hard drive, plug the male plug from the fan into it, and plug the female end of the fan into the hard drive. Both fan and HDD get power this way.
