I have an ASUS card that had one of the fans die. I ordered a replacement fan and it seems like the fan is the right size and shape except it has a MALE 4 pin connector on it. The previous fan had a FEMALE connector on it, so I'm trying to find a female to female 4 pin GPU Fan connector and it's proving to be impossible!!

Does anyone have any advice of the cheapest way I can connect these two cables to each other?

Thank you!

 
guess ill have to correct myself a little bit
plug with hole is a female
banana plug is male
picture shows marked 2x male
on board u should have 1x male
onceu plug in female + male on fans, u will be left with 1x male
1x male on fan + 1x male on board = no connection
so u need 2x female, but there are none on market
that fan came with incorrect connector

Thanks guys, I already know all this and I rather not return the fan. How is it possible that NO ONE makes a FEMALE TO FEMALE connector like this

they arent making it because power flows from point A to point B..safety reasons
point A goes to mobo, point B is device
cables u can find is always single A, and 1 or more B (for splitters)
not the other way around, coz once u get too many cables, it will get messy and something will just burn if u connect it at random

Ahh - no. It's just electricity - pins touching pins. you just need the right connector.
