If you connect the fans to the mobo, they will often run at the maximum (rated) speed of the fan.

If you connect the fans to the H80, they will change speed depending on the temperature, so at idle they may slow down, but will pick up in speed if the CPU starts getting hot.

The GTs are quiet enough that it doesn't really matter.

My H80 and now H100 I plugged in my Aerocool sharks to the pump and they work well with the 3 step controller.
