Bought 3 Nocuta 140mm PWM fans and a NZXT Sentry 2 AND I cant use them :'(

Got so excited that I'd be able to put system together and I completely overlooked the fact they're 4 pin fans and the NZXT Sentry 2 only allows 3 pin fans :'(

4pin to 3pin adapter, problem solved.

I think the Aero cool controllers support 4 pin, if you can send the NZXT back.

I cant seem to find the adapters for that.

You could probably just snip the side of the 3 pin connector to fit the 4pin.

IRRC, if you plug a four pin PWM fan into a three pin connection it will just run at 100% speed.

Yes. 4th pin is just for PWM.
