    Yes. But I prefer 4 pin to use the "smartfan" feature in the bios. This feature allows you to control the fan rpms, and keep the noise lower.
  2. i heard somewhere that putting the 3 pin connector in the 4 pin slot could cause damage to the fan or motherboard is that true
  3. no you will be fine
