    I cannot figure out how to connect the 3 case fans that came with my Cooler Master Scout case. They are all pre-wired and the wires seem to route to the case header. I expected to connect these wires to the main board, but where are the connectors?
    Any help appreciated.

    Judging from the stock photos it looks like they are MOLEX:

    you can simply attach the molex to the power supply female molexes.

    if they are three pin, get 3 pin to molex converter.
    or get a 3pin female and 3, 3pin males. connect the males to the female following the 3 pin layout,

    connect all wires except the RPM wire.
    connect the rpm wire for only one fan, or else the rpm will be mixed up LOL.
