Does the GA-Z97X-Game Plus allow for 3 pin fan speed control?

Title. Would be great if someone knew.

Greetings,
The answer to your question is yes.  Check out page 15 & 16 of the fine manual.  All headers are 4 pin.  Pin 1 is always on the left.  3 pin speed control equipped fans can be connected to any of the headers starting from the left.  Pin 2 on all system fan headers is 12+/speed control.  The exception is the CPU_FAN header, pin 3 is fan speed, pin 4 is speed control.  If you want greatest flexibility, 4 pin fans equipped with speed control are recommended.
