You'll find three-pin connectors coming from the power supply that have only two pins in the jacket. Attach them and see if they run. They will run full time, but running in such a mode (two full time, one on the controller) won't be a detriment to the machine.

Good luck

What is the cooler in question here? Some have onboard converters down to a single fan cable.

There are two types of fans, and thats the issue.
Some are the 3/4 pin small cables that attach to the motherboard.
There are also the 2 pin (In a 4 pin) molex fans that are larger. One is dynamic, the other goes straight to the PSU.
