CPU Cooler 3 pin fan connector

So here's the dealeo you guys, I should be getting a Thermaltake Frío in a couple of days now, maybe next week, overall it looks like a monster of a cooling solution, my only question is: How should I connect the fan connector to my motherboard's CPU fan header?, given that the fan connector that comes with the Thermaltake Frío only has 3 pins?

Should I connect it like this?

1 2 3 4

Or like this?

The connector is slotted and will only fit properly. No guesswork required.

Agreed. I would also suggest you look at your manual.... just in case.

Should look like this....

Which would allow the pin to only be connected one way.

There is actually.

But if there's only one way to plug it in, I shouldn't have any problems then.

Thanks anyways.
