Okay so, I looked this up but I'd figure I'd ask anyway.

I have i7 930, sabertooth x58m. I had a micro atx x58m before and it was a utter bitch to get the noctua nh-d14 in, but I did. I recalled using one of the Y connectors/splitters/ or w/e, put into cpu fan header.

After a while my micro atx got killed by surge and I went to sabertooth. Been using stock cpu cooler. After months of laziness I take it out and finally find the time to put the giant back in. I lost my connector or whatever, some low-speed splitter, and they are both connected to chassis at the moment since I figured they are 3-pin, and the cpu fan header is one 4-pin.

Can I just plug the middle fan's 3-pin into the cpu fan header and be technically good to go or.. must I buy one of these connectors/splitters because I lost it.

Or should I go on a bios adventure? Sorry if I sound confusing.

So I can either buy another one of these Y splitters or plug the middle fan's 3-pin (larger one between the heat sinks) into the 4-pin cpu fan header, I'll just lose the PWM controlled speed since the fourth pin allows that? Just making sure really, nothing wrong otherwise.
