Default CPU Fan error!

CPU Fan Error!
Press F1 to resume.

I bought a new fan for my CPU heatsink, it didn't have a 4 pin connector, but it had a 3 pin to molex, so I connected it.
Everytime I start up it gives me this error.
And also, how can I control the fan?

Well you should still be able to use the fans 3 pin connector on the board but you will loose the ability to control it just like the way you have it now.

Another way you could do it is to get a fan controller so you can adjust it and just plug 1 of the normal case fans into the cpu header just to get rid of that error.

You should have the option in your bios to turn off the cpu fan warning.
