PC Case RGB Fans

Rekt1337

Hello, i recently bought new pc case, on the front there are 3 rgb fans each with two cables, one to power them, and the second one i believe to control rgb, i know i have to buy a controller to control their lighting, but how about powering them? my mother board has two fans plugging options, cpufan and sysfan, cpufan has 4 pins and is taken by cpu cooling, the one left which is sysfan has 3 pins, so there is a question, if i buy a controller, is it going to not only control the lighting but also power them? my fans have 4 pins each so i need to buy a controller that fits them, but i dont know if it itself needs a 4 pin connector to mobo, can i get a adapter from 4 to 3 pins? is it possible? thanks

mobo: h81m-p33 
psu: silentiumpc vero m2 600w
case: msi mag pylon

It will only go in one way there's a little slot on both the pin connectors that will line up

if that's what makes them lit, what is the second cable for? or is is just for controlling and the second one is for cooling?
