Why are you upgrading, the TT Big Typhoon is the best air heatsink out there. If you need higher performance, stick a 100+ CFM fan on there.

Cutting it off should be ok, but personally I would stick with the 4 pin connector, as running a powerful fan like that off your mobo could short it out. I guess fan controlers have a 3 pin connector too though...

Don't run it off your MOBO header, you will absolutely pwn your mobo. It needs to run from the PSU or a fan controller, but not the motherboard.
