Hey all! So I bought a Motherboard a couple days ago, Asus P8Z77-V Pro and it comes with fan controller software but my fans are unable to connect to the motherboard because my fan wires are 3 pin while the motherboard pins are 4 pin.

I wanted to know if there was some sort of connector for the fans 3 pin to make it 4 pin.

Can someone find the adapter (if there is one) here. www.canadacomputers.com I have no idea what i'd look for.

I wouldnt know, because my build in itself had enough fan headers to perfectly utilize all the fans i needed, and tis the only build i have built so far physically(building a second one later for someone else)

with the 3 pins pins fan the motherboard wont be able to control the speed you need 4 pins fans to control the speed

You can control the fans through the ASUS BIOS or through windows with the software AI Suite(Fan Xpert+).
