OK. Let's get back to the subject.

Quote from the review:

This unit only works with the 3 pin fans, so if you have the 4 pin Molex, you will need to some some wire splicing, or purchase and adapter, they really should have included a 4pin Molex connector or two in as extras.

Now, let's clarify some basics regarding 3 and 4-wire fans:
3-wire fans are RPM-monitoring capable (thus 3rd wire)
4-wire fans are also voltage-monitoring capable (thus 4th wire).
So, if you want 4-wire fan plugged into 3-pin jack, you will have to sacrifice voltage monitoring (that is monitored directly at the fan, and not at the source).
