Z97 Gaming 3 Fan Headers

Hi Guys, I was just wondering what sort of fan headers this motherboard has and what pin they are, 3,4 or a combination of both? I'm also going to purchase the X-Predator X3 Case which comes with two inbuilt fan controllers and I was wondering how these work? Does the fans 3 or 4 pin plug into the controller and then is the whole fan controller powered with a molex or something? Just trying to clear up a bit of confusion. Thanks

From the looks of it, i think they are 4 pin headers.

As for the controllers, i can't really say. From my experience with build-in fan controllers(I have a Corsair 500R), it was powered by a molex and the fan connectors went out and connected with the actual fans.

OK thanks, I'll do a bit more research, thanks.
