Oh, also, re: 3-pin vs. 4-pin, interesting page that says "don't worry
about it" (unless you want speed control):

Otherwise you're looking at an adapter (this was the top Google hit):

Trevor may have an adaptor in stock, you'll have to ask him...  for that

I've found a vague reference to this fan being used on an AM3 socket, does that describe your situation?  If so, the forum poster I found replaced his AVC fan with a "Be Quiet!" brand "Shadow Rock TF2" (https://www.bequiet.com/en/cpucooler/1074) which may or may not fit your case.  (And holy cow is it ever expensive!)
