My question is how to connect the case fans to the motherboard.

The case has two intake fans and one exhaust fan, and one optional exhaust fan.

The motherboard has these fan power connectors:

4-pin Chassis Fan Connector (CHA_FAN1)
3-pin Chassis Fan Connector (CHA_FAN2)
3-pin Power Fan Connector (PWR_FAN1)
4-pin CPU Fan Connector (CPU_FAN1)
3-pin CPU Fan Connector (CPU_FAN2)

Per the manual, the Chassis Fan Connectors "support Fan Control".

So which case fans would you connect to the Chassis Fan Connectors, and which case fan would you connect to the Power Fan Connector? Since there are two CPU Fan Connectors, would you everf use one of them for a Chassis Fan?

Here is the motherboard I am looking at.
