my case fans some with two molex connectors (one is molex and the other from what i have been reading is a passthrough connector) how do i go about hooking them all up since there is no spot on the motherboard to hook them to (just 3 pin connectors on the board) ive read that you can link all the fans together using the connectors that the fans come with...how do i go about doing this

Just plug them all together in a chain. Then plug that to a power supply molex.

You can also pick up an adaptor which takes them from 4 pin Molex to the 3 pin connector used on the mobo. 8)

will this effect the voltage that the fans put out...will they run at the same speed as if they were connected one at a time to the board itself

No, it won't affect the voltage. Adding items like that increase amperage draw. It has no bearing on what voltage is put out (provided you stay within the PSU's limits, which fans can't even come close to stressing a power supply.
