Default Fan

I am looking to get a nice big intake fan for my computer. Something that moves 93.7 cfm of air. First off (this is for a new system I'm working on, my sisters computer), I want to turn one of my fans thats blowing air into my computer, and switch it around so it's blowing air out. Then have a big 120 mm fan in the back blowing a big amount of air in. My question is for a fan like this one:

http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...22#DetailSpecs

How would I know if the new motherboard im buying (this one)

http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...10#DetailSpecs

could use that 3 pin connector. The fan says that the power connector is 3 pin, how do I know if that motherboard will be able to attach to that?

ALSO in this picture here:

Whats that thing in the top left corner. I see the thing in the top right connects to the motherboard and the power supply, but whats that in the top left corner?

you can clearly see the little thing that connects to another wire coming out of the power supply. But my power supply (400 watts and nothing on this system is a big power guzzler), does not have an extra wire coming out of it to connect this new fan to. Where can i get like a splitter type thing to a random wire into two things so i can connect my fan to the power supply?

It looks like something to adjust the fan speed.

I looked up your motherboard for you. Nice board by the way. All your CPU, Chassis, and Power fan all use 3-pin power connectors so you should be fine with the fan you picked out.

If you want the link to the .PDF file for your motherboard, here it is:

Happy reading!!!

As for the power splitter, Newegg's got them:
