I have four fans in my Antec 300 case. Should I connect all 4 to the PSU cable and also connect the cable to the mobo as well?

Do NOT connect the fans to BOTH the motherboard and the PSU, its a one or the other deal, if you connect them to both it will cook the board's fan header.

I have the regular 300 not the illusions but i have mine daisy chained together and hooked into the PSU directly(they are tri-speed so i still have speed control), if the front two in your case are not tri-cool fans and dont have the switch they will run at full speed if connected straight to the PSU, this isnt an issue for the fan but if you want speed control you will need to hook them to the motherboard.
