panaflo L1a and connector

Hi, I am going to pick up a couple of 80mm fans. It comes with a two pin plug. The vendor is offering to sleeve the fan tail with a 3 pin connector?

If you don't know how to check the clearances, find a buddy who knows and get him/her to check it out. If...

I plan to put a Barton mobile on it. Now, to cool it, I need to go pretty cheap, so I was thinking of the Zalman CNPS7000B-AlC...
