Sorry for the noobish question,
While my Zalman 9500 have a 3-pin connector, the power for the cpu fan on the motherboard (Gigabyte EP45-UD3R) has 4-pins. Must I get a new cable or how else will I solve this?

Thanks in advance!

Insert it into the four pin slot with the left most pin emtpy. That will be OK. If you wish you can insert it into another available 3 pin fan connector if it will reach, if not get an extension

SR45, Nice! I inserted it with the far left pin empty, if it's OK like you mentioned, this works great!

Thanks man!
