The front of the R4 has one fan and it's a 3 pin connector. "OK" I say to myself. I try to plug it into the mobo in "chassis fan 2" but the wire isn't long enough. It doesn't reach any of the fan plugs on my atx mobo. So I try plugging it into the 2 pin connector and that obviously doesn't work and I don't know what it's for how to use it. So what I am wondering is how the hell am I suppose to plug this fan in (and if I get another one on top)?

I think your case has a fan controller, connect your fans to that.
Yep. My case is a Fractal Define XLR2; same deal with the molex fan controller.
I'm not sure if your case came with low-voltage fan adapters or not (I can't remember if they came with my case or the extra fans I bought), but they make their Silent Series fans whisper quiet.

Huh. I had length to spare plugging in my front fan with the R4. Maybe it's the layout of our motherboards being different. --- Intel i5 4670k | Corsair 16GB DDR3 | Gigabyte GTX 770 4GB | ASUS 27" 1440p Corsair 480GB SSD | WD 4TB HDD | Fractal Design R4 | Corsair 750MX | Win7Ult 64
