Default 2 pin female system fan connection question

On the new computer I am building the system fan has a 2 pin female connection. No problem for the motherboard but I want to connect it to a fan control with 3 pins. Can I just fit the 2 pins in to match the red and black wires or do I need an adapter?

It doesn't need that third wire to help with monitoring?

What do you mean by monitoring is optional?

Could I get a new 3 wire fan (if I can find one). It is a 40mm x 10mm chipset fan for an Epox 9NPA+ Ultra. Well????????????
Where would you recommend looking to find such a thing???
