My new case has three 120mm fans.

Motherboard has one fan header.

PSU has only one spare SATA and one spare floppy connector.

Is there a fan controller that can power the three case fans? Preferably, it would occupy an expansion slot (no room on front of case).

My Silverstone Grandia GD-05B case doesn't have a spare 5.25" external drive slot.

More importantly, I couldn't figure out what kind of power connection NZXT Sentrey 2 requires.

I have (i) one spare fan header on mobo, (ii) one spare SATA power cable and (iii) one spare floppy power cable. That is it!

The NZXT Sentry 2 uses one of your molex connectors coming from your PSU. Can you list what PSU you are using?

The PSU is an Antec made specifically for Dell. It doesn't have a molex connector. It has 4 SATA connectors (I'm using 3 of them) and one floppy connector. I don't have budgeted for a replacement PSU.

One option I can think of if you don't have molex connectors is to buy splitters. I don't know of any fan connections that can come off of SATA connectors or IDE connectors (I'm pretty sure you have an IDE connection in order to connect to a floppy drive).

Try searching up 3 or 4 pin connection splitters and see what you like.

The floppy connector I am referring to is the one called "Floppy drive power cable" here: http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#floppy
