I have an HPp6677c with a H-ALVORIX_HF-RS880-uATX (Foxconn Model 2AB1 (1.00) Motherboard ), (HP/Compaq motherboard name: Alvorix-GL8E.) I can only find 2-ea 3-prong motherboard fan connection: SYS FAN, CPU FAN. I have purchased 4X4GB DDR3 ram and a fan with which to cool them (HyperX.) Is there another fan connection on this board of which I'm not aware, and, if not, how would you suggest installing this fan; so the motherboard can control the speed and temperature controls?

I suggest you return the ram fans. Today's lower voltage ram do not even need heat spreaders, let alone fans.
Only if you are seeking record level overclocks perhaps.

If you want to install the fans, there are some fan controllers that will fit in a front panel bay.
They will have temperature sensors and can control the fans.

On a lower tech level, a Zalman fanmate is an easy way to adjust the speed of fans.
