Default Very Stupid Question

not to proud of the question i'm about to ask but ive searched google, everywhere (searched forums) but cant get an answer

when getting a fan (i got a fan controller) how do you install it? what if i dont have enough four pin connecters? where can i get side cases for my dell E510? (so i can show off my b-e-a-utiful leds)

i have a lga775 socket and i was wondering if i can how i can install fans with different sockets or cant i?

Leaving the side panel off will disturb the intended air flow and allow more dust in eventually causing the system to heat up more than whats good for it.

Fans usually come with three to four converters, and molex converters so you can connect them to your psu instead of the mobo.
