    I don't think you HAVE to, unless the PSU itself has any kind of fan controller that will "see" the fan not being there as a fault and give you an error. If it doesn't I think you can go ahead and connect the fan anywhere you want.

    But may i ask why would you want to do such a modification ?

    Taling apart a PSU may be risky... but I du understand your willing to have the cables elsewhere... - not 100% sure of the size of your particular PSU, but can not turn it 90 degrees?

    I would let the original fan and it's connection to PSU... just think, if you want to connect the PSU's fan to the mobo, then you will have extra wires... - which you actually want to hide...
