I have a Corsair 760T Case, plugging into a Gigabyte X299 Designare EX... Please see the following images... :p







Finally, I have a 140mm exhaust fan that came with my tower. However, it only has 3 prong-holes on It (or whatever you want to call them).

If any cool cat out there can help me with this fan (and the other stuff above), I'd be eternally grateful. Thanks so much!!!

Look at item 13 (last page) in the installation manual -- https://www.corsair.com/corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/GRAPHITE-760T-Install-Guide.pdf
That case has a fan speed controller. Those are fan connectors just like the ones on a motherboard.
My CASE MANUAL directed me to plug in a SATA cable to control all of the fan controls. I think perhaps these connections are for various cases, instead of just mine.

Thank you sir for your input and kindness!

(By the way, this is a new build, and as of yet has not been turned on. It will be, however, shortly!)

Sorry for the "crusty" fingers - we've just moved and I've been hauling, opening, and closing cardboard boxes for the last 2 weeks. This will dry your hands out for sure!!!

Thanks again!!!

Holy smurfs on a wood-burning spit! I never even THOUGHT of that! I'm looking at the fan inputs on my mobo, it never occurred to me to look at the fan connectors themselves (that is, the Doohickys). Don't I just feel LIKE AN A$$!!!

Thank you!!!
