Should I use the fan controller in my case?

I recently put together a new PC with an X570 Taichi board and a Fractal Design Define 7 case. The case came with a fan controller hub, but I have enough chassis fan headers on the motherboard to use those instead. Using the hub would let me hide those cables to the cable-hiding part of the case, but I’m wondering whether there’s any other advantage.

Also, while I’m here, I’ll ask about this photo:

The CPU (Noctua NH-D15) fan just touches the side of the case. The side snaps on easily, but is putting a slight pressure on the heat sink this way a problem?
