So my 120mm fan got screwed up and I guess it just wore out (pretty damn cheap of the company if you ask me) because the part holding the fan on making it spin wore down and now it clicks all the time. So, since I was here downstate, I decided to get a new fan (because the company won't replace it unless I send them my WHOLE case). I found a great 120mm ball bearing fan for my side panel on my case. Upon inspection of it, I realized it had a cable to plug into the motherboard. It came with another cable that'll hook to the motherboard connector on the fan so that it will be able to hook to my power supply too if I don't want to plug it into the motherboard. My question is what would be the advantage of plugging it into the motherboard, rather than having a connection to the power supply? I can do either, but would the motherboard connection give me some advantages that my old fan did not have?
