Nowhere to plug 2 pin fan LED connectors to?

I have 6 fans in my case, and they all have the normal 3 pin connector for the fan power, but they also have a separate 2 pin connector for the LEDs. The 2 pin connectors are supposed to connect to a case LED switch, but I only have one switch.

I tried looking for some kind of molex to 2-pin connector but none of them match the style of these connectors. I don't need them to be on a switch, but I would like them to be on. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

It would appear the Phanteks fan is similar to the way I described the Bitfenix. Needs the short cable/switch plugged in to turn the LEDs on/off.


The 120mm NZXT fan's LEDs should be on all the time. The 200mm NZXT link didn't work for me.

Can you list or link to the fans? it sounds like some Bitfenix Spectre Pro PWM LED fans I had a while back that came with a 2 wire connector that controls the LEDs. If so...
They do NOT get power. That 2 wire cable is simply a pair of wires that would go to the Bitfenix controller for LED control. If you don't have the controller, the fans should have come with a cable loop (jumper) that you plug it to allow the lites to function.

Sure thing. Here are links to the fans:

I did originally buy a BitFenix 230mm fan and it had that loop thing you were talking about, but it didn't fit in my case so I had to return it. Now all of these fans just have a cable, and the LEDs don't turn on unless the 2-pin cable is plugged in it seems.

Where does the wire (the one the red arrow is pointing to) plug in?

I have an Ethoo Pro M case and ASUS Z390-A mobo.
