that's great another question if you don't mind me asking the motherboard has 4 system fans connectors and the define r4 has a fan controller for 3 fans does it work as in all 3 fans in the controller goes to 1 system fan connector then the 3 other case fans on the motherboard if that's the case i could have a total of 6 system fans correct?

Looks the Case Fans for that model are:
Quote:
Fan controller for 3 fans (included), 1 rear Fractal Design 140mm @1000rpm (included), 1 front Fractal Design 140mm @1000rpm (included), 1 front 120/140mm fan (optional), 2 top 120/140mm fan (optional), 1 bottom 120/140mm fan (optional), 1 side panel 120mm/140mm fan (optional)
You should be able to achieve your needs in fans config

Well...looks the motherboard have system fans for 4pins on all the fans, and the Define R4 have a fan controller for 3pins fans supplied.

Yes i know the motherboard supports 4 system fans and the define r4 supports 3 fans in the fan controller the question is using the fan controller for 3 fans does it plug into 1 motherboard system fan header then have additional 3 system fans in the remaining slots on the motherboard understand?

If Define R4 have only 3Pins fans headers and the motherboard have 4pins fans headers, i doubt it can help you, understand?
