I have a dilemma. I am building a computer. My motherboard is "ASUS P8Z68-V LX". I need 60mm only true 4 pin fan in order for my motherboard to be able to control that fan's speed. All fans that are for sale, including those that are claimed to be 4 pin, are not 4 pin, but rather 3 pin with a 4 pin plug for hard drive, etc. Any idea where I can get a fan like that or if there is a solution. The 80mm 4 pin fan is available but it is way too big. Thank you.

Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V LX; Processor: Intel i5 2500k; RAM 24GB: CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800); CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800); Video Card: MSI AMD Radeon RX 470 Gaming X 4G GDDR5; Storage: HDD 2TB Seagate ST2000DM001-9YN164; SSD 500GB Samsung 860 EVO 500GB;Power Supply:  OCZ ZS Series 650W 80PLUS Bronze High Performance Power Supply; Multi-card reader: Nippon Labs Delux 3.5" Internal All In One Card Reader/Writer with USB2.0 & eSATA Ports Model ICR-BB. Optical 1: LG GH22NS90; Optical 2:  ASUS BW-12B1ST; Fans: 3x80mm, CPU Cooling: XIGMATEK LOKI SD963. So there are total of 6 fans.

See that is what I am talking about. If you look closely, there are only 3 cords coming out of the fan, not 4. Which means its speed will not be controlled by the motherboard's. Even the description says 3/4.

Here is the 80mm fan I recently bought that is truly a 4 pin, yet it is 80mm. That is what I am looking for in the 60mm size. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835426010

Please take a good look of it, 3/4 means that it have double cords, one is 4 pin and one is 3 pin.
Do you means 4 pin for plugged to Mainboard not to Power Supply? if yes, that's fan usually came with Heatsink Fan. you could buy a connector to make 3 pin to 4 pin.

You consider this fan.

This is specification for that fan.

Sorry I am not being clear. This fan is for rear of the chassis, for exhaust purposes. The case only allows for 60mm fan. I want motherboard to be able to control that fan so it wouldn't spin 1500-2000 RPM all the time.
