Where to plug fans in?

I have my order coming in on Monday and I want to be ready.

I have 2 120mm case fans I ordered, a case fan that came with the case and my stock cpu fan. Looking at the layout of my mobo I am just a bit confused as to where things go.

Here are the purchased fans. I think it says they are 3 pin connectors. Are they not compatible with my mobo? http://www.vuugo.com/computer-hardware/computer-parts/computer-cooling/case-fan/coolermaster-case-fans-R4-L2S-122B-GP.html?filter_name=cooler+master+sleeve+bearing+120mm+blue+led+silent+fan+-+2+in+1+value+pack+-+1200%C2%B110%25+rpm+-+39.77cfm+-+19.3+db-a+%28r4-l2s-122b-gp%29

MOBO (user manual ftp://66.226.78.21/manual/H97%20Pro4.pdf) http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asrock-motherboard-h97pro4

Am I plugging the 2 added fans into CHA_FAN 1/2? What goes into PWR_FAN 1

2 x CPU Fan Connectors (1 x 4-pin, 1 x 3-pin)

2 x Chassis Fan Connectors (2 x 4-pin)

you can connect any 3 pin fan to a 4 pin header.

connect the stock cpu fan to the 4 pin CPU fan connector.

you will have another cpu fan connector and 2 chassis fan connectors which should be enough for 4 fans.

What goes into PWR_FAN 1

It is for monitoring PSU fans where supported
