Default Need advice on what to do for system fan connector.

I bought a case with a system fan already in place. It has the power connector but my motherboard has a system fan connector. My fan has a large connector and my mobod has a small one. This connector allows you to link with the cooling fan on the system case to lower the temp. What can I do?

Do you think the fan that came with the case would be good enough that I should get a 4 to 3 pin adapter and hook to my motherboard or do you think it would be best to get a new fan that already has 3pins? If so what is the quietest fan I can get? That is my biggest concern is quiet. I want to be able to use the mobod plug to monitor the fan.

The quietest fans are the ball baring type, they are expensive though. The fan that came with your case should be fine.
