Unhappy Fan Drama

Hey guys,
So I want to connect 6 cougar fans to the new PC I'm building.

I want to connect 3 of these,
and then 3 of these.

According to my mobo's specs, I can connect 4 fans directly to it.
That means I'd have to connect the other 2 to my PSU.
The fans have 3 pin connectors.

How do I go about making this whole mess work?

I guess I could connect 2 fans to my PSU, right? But I can't find any 3 pin to molex adapters for the fans. The power supply I'm using was a gift from my dad so I don't have a link to it at this time, but I can get one in a bit if it's necessary to solve this problem.
