    So I'm planning on doing some venting, Is it possible to wire 2-3 pc case Fans via the 4 pin heads first to EACH OTHER then have them all connect to ONE extension 4pin that's attached right onto an adapter that has 1800ma?

    the 4 pin head is at this link

    Yea, basic soldering or some hot glue would do the trick.

    if it were me i would cut the 4 pin wire adapter off and connect all the wires from the fans together...then connect that to a 12v adapter...2 fans max tho if there 120mm

    They make splitters where you get 2 or more out of 1 4 pin. Hold on, I'll see if I can find one.

    Also, you should just get something like this:

    istead of pissing yourself off with 4pin stuff... cut the wires, take the black one, and the red... attache them to your power source (i recommend getting a 250watt computer PSU from newegg....got mine for 12$+$8.99 shipping) (one the PSU the 12volt is yellow) plus you can use it for otherthings too... lets say your growing with LEDs you could use that as the power supply...
    and if you dont want to "ruin" the 4 pins, buy the PSU and plug them right in...
