Is sata cable recommended for case fan or molex connector? Or what is the common way to go about case fan connector? I just hate molex connector, it takes a while to get it pushed in and sata connectors snapped right in.

Modern case fans should connect to a 3or4pin header on a motherboard. Older/cheaper fans will run directly from the PSU (typically molex).

I don't recall seeing an SATA powered fans off the top of my head, although I'm sure some exist.
