well molexes are great for fans and stuff but i would definately not use them for power. THey are not designed to handle that much power. Use the 2 or 3 pin keyed connectors for the fans. If u need specific part no's just tell meh.

... We used the Molex quick disconnects for all of our motors for all of our motors last year, and they worked just fine. Is that what you are talking about? If so, they're great - nice and easy :) I highly recommend using them.
