PC build question

I feel like I already had a thread on this but can’t find it.

My first attempt to help my son build a gaming PC failed. So we are starting with a purpose made case and motherboard.

The motherboard fan connectors are 4 pin male. The case fans are 3 pin. I have adapter wires that are 5 pin on one side (only 4 wires) and 4 pin on the other, but can accept the 3 pin fan wire.

So, black, red, yellow have a path to the fan.

Why the hell can’t this stuff be standardized? Anyone here know which pins from the motherboard actually have to get to the fan?
