After puting the new fan into my case my computer has been going very slow, also when i put my new fan in i cut the other one out because i was not able figure out how to disconnect it ( only cut the cable that the was on old fan ).

If you cut the actual cable and spliced a new one in, you could have shorted the line, and could be damaging everything its connected to.

You should always safely unplug every fan.

I just cut the cable from old and put some tape over it. the new fan goes into a plug on my motherboard. The old fan was going into PSU i think

YOu should have just unplugged it, you could be shorting something.
