Default Installing my PowerChill p4 Copper Cpu Cooler Help please!

Hey guys i have a big problem.. Im kinda new to customizing pc's so dont think these questions are stupid ones please! Anyways i went to comp usa tonight and picked up a MAD DOG Power Chill Copper Cpu heatsink cooler for my Pent 4 comp. I go inside my comp to take off my old heatsink but i finally realized that on my mother board there is no place for me to plug in the 3 pin adapter Becouse i have to plug the fan into into power from the power supply then it goes to the speed controller but then i cant find a damn place to plug the last 3 pin into. . . Even if i where to take one of the fans off one of the slots on the mother board it doesnt fit in there either.. Am i missing somthing here? Any help would be much apreciated thanks.

If the fan is connected through a female molex, then the 3-pin connector is to be connected to the motherboard for monitoring purposes only.
