The fractal r4 case has some fan controling cables, i have no idea how to connect it, is it ok if i leave them disconnected? Also, my chasis fan is a 3 pin connector but the FM2A88X board has 4 pins on the connector for cha fan 1. I fit the 3 pin connector onto the 4 pin on the board is this ok?

yes and yes

when connecting a 3 pin as long as it still slides over the gui8de on the pins it is fine.

the forth pin is for active fan rpm control

the fan controller can control 3 fans so you would just plug the fans into the controller. on the front of the case there is a button with the ability to change to three separate presets for fan speed. the motherboard will do just as well except oif they are 3 pin you be able to control there speed(the motherboard needs four pin connectors to control speed)

best of luck.

you can also instal a ssd behind the motherboard for a stealth ssd

You connect the fan controller cables to your chassis fans cables directly. There are 3 fan controller cables for controlling up to 3 different fans,. You may have plugged your chassis fans into the motherboard, if so unplug them and mate them with your fan controller cables, connect a molex power connector from your power supply and you're done.
