Whats the Point of the Switch ??

Let the Mobo control it - thats why you have a point on the board to connect to.

 

But if you wanted to make sure it is shielded from where ever you mount it away from any metal .

If its an extra fitted fan / you installed it - dont use it.

But i would buy a Fan that is of higher Quality and less noisy.

If its that bad it may be the bearing or dust buildup / they dont last forever.

Not every motherboard fan controller can handle having the stationary fan suddenly connected while the board is under power. I've had a controller die from that, since they're more intended to "soft-start" the fan. A hard switched fan would be better run direct from a PSU power cable, like with a Molex adapter.
