Question Does this Motherboard have enough case fan slots?

I researched for the GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 Motherboard http://www.newegg.ca/Product/P.....6813128498

and I still can not clearly find if there are places to put in at least 2 to 3 Case (or chasis) Fans! Im looking at the Cooler master Storm Enforcer case, Front 200m Fan and 120mm Back. I would like to add 1 more 120mm to the top maybe...But does that mobo have the right slots and things for those fans? Please a explanation and clear response why or why not from ANYONE who has experience with this

Thanks
-Alex

Go to Gigabytes site and download the motherboard manual.

Most case fans connect to the power supply via a 4 pin molex.

If there are 2 or 3 on the board, how many do you plan on using? I think you can also connect more than one to the board (at least my fans I was able to do that).
