This post here will help you but in a nutshell you should be able to dependant on the motherboard as it should also have a DC control method. What model and make of motherboard do you have?

Ok I have had a look at your motherboard manual and you have 2 fan ports. 1 called CPU_FAN1 and one called CHA_FAN1/WP.

They both seem to be DC and PWM so you should have no problems controlling your 3 pin fans.

This motherboard provides a 4-Pin CPU fan (Quiet Fan) connector. If you plan to connect a 3-Pin CPU fan, please connect it to Pin 1-3.

If you go to section 4.8 of the manual - 4.8 'Hardware Health Event Monitoring Screen', you will see how to control your fans through the BIOS via:
