a free fan from the case

The cpu fan is probably a PWM fan that changes speed as the cpu gets hotter or cooler and should be run from the motherboard connector only .

Its usual to run the rest of the fans directly from the four pin molex connectors on the PSU. Connect them all to one molex [or whatever looks tidy ]
