Are you sure it's a 4 pin fan connector and not a 4 pin molex connector ?
If yes , the notch will still line-up, your fan just won't be PWM controlled.
If not, you'll need a 4 pin to 3 pin fan adapter, they sometimes come with the case.

That helps.
From what I see in photos they are 3 pin fan connectors.
