ya you can use that fan, just plug it into one of the 3-pin ports on your new mobo, different brands have different colors, as far as your front sound goes, there should be a cable coming from it where its 2 rows and one of the outside has a block in it, just read your manual for your new motherboard

hm , i had a mobo once with no 3 pin fan coonectors on the mobo , you can just get a connector to wire it up to a molex or if you are adventurous you could wire it yourself tis just the black and red cable you need for power
