  1. Plug them into the motherbd, they will still work fine. The motherbd is designed to work with 3wire or 4wire connectors.
  2. they dont pug in because they are 3 pins with 3 spikes and on the mobo it 4 pins with 4 spikes so they cant plug into. should i get new fans?
  3. you have the wrong connector. a fan will either have 3/4 pin FEMALE connector or a 4 Pin Molex connector.

    if it's 3/4 pin male then u have the wrong end of an extension / adapter.

    trace the cable back. start from the FAN and follow the connector.

    post pics if u still have problems.
