I just order two Zalman VF900-Cu to go on my 7900GT KO's and what I was wanting to know can you hook it Straight to the power supply and bypass haveing to hook it up to the motherboard and that fan controller,because if it runs at full speed at around 2500rpm ,that is not going to bother me ,plus I would be keeping it on high all the time anyway.

I don't know off hand if there is an adapter to plug that type of plug directly into a molex connector, but the fan controller isn't required. You can plug the fan straight into the motherboard without the controller and it'll run full speed.

Zalman actually makes an adaptor. It's the same one that comes with the VF700. If you do a google search for "zalman zm-MC1" you'll find it. It's a 4pin to 3pin connector with 4 3pin connectors. 2 of them are 5v and 2 of them are 12v that way you can run the fan at full or half speed. It goes for about $3 USD.
