Windows 7: CPU Cooler

I'm revisiting this thread, because I've decided to buy another cooler for my secondary rig. If I can't find anything better, I will get another CM TX3, like I have on the primary, but there is a couple of things that I don't particularly like about it. First, is that the method of attaching to a 939 motherboard is quite clumsy with the separate attachment bracket. It wouldn't be so bad if installing outside of the case, but within the case, it is tedious. The second problem is that this and every other cooler that I have found uses a 4 pin pwn connector. Tlhis would be good on a newer system, but on what I have (3 pin), I have to choose between having the fan always on at full speed (noisey), or letting the BIOS control it, but doing that causes it to run at full speed or off, rather than varying the speed as it should. This on/off configuration is quite annoying, so I've been using the continous full speed option.

I'm beginning to doubt that what I want exists, for my older system, but I'm hoping that someone can make a suggestion in addition to those above, that I will like better?
