your guess is right on the money. The fans that were offered as suggested all use molex connections, with the exception of the PWM fans. Those are all for direct connections to the motherboard, not the case fan connections you have

if you just replace the FAN no, you will not need to do anything with the heatsink. the Noiseblocker fans I suggested are 3 and 4 pin compatible, as is the Cooler Master
