I have a

Couger Volant Case that can support up to 8Fans but currently there is only 1 Installed(Side panel)

I want to add more like 3 fans (1Bottom, 1 rear, and 1Front) and after 1month i'll add a H100i and put it the fans and on top

But my MoBo (GA-78LMT-S2) can only support 1 Case Fan and 1 CPU Fan. But I'm going to change my mobo to a 990FX if i can save money. but for the meantime,
Are there other options like buying a "Y" Connector or Plugging the fan to the PSU (my PSU is Cougar SL 600W )

But I don't know what kind of connector or adapter to buy.

If you go down the separate fan controller route (which you need since your motherboard has limited fan headers), the controller itself normally only takes a single molex power source which then supplies power to all attached fans. The lead coming from your fans plug directly into the controller. The fan speed for each fan can then be controlled independently.
