Does it matter which fan plug goes into which CHA_FAN on the motherboard?

Plugging them in randomly is OK?

it depends on which fan..... the fan on the cpu cooler NEEDS to be connected to CPU FAN, only way motherboard can detect if that fan stops working. Other fans it really doesn't matter...

Yes CPU fan needs to be in a CPU fan header. Then just plug other fans into the closest headers in the motherboard.

If your motherboard has more than 1 cpu fan header, but your CPU cooler only has one fan, you can use the other CPU fan header for a case fan, but that fan will just throttle up and down more like a CPU cooler fan.

Or spend a couple of dollars on a fan splitter

Pertaining to cable management. The fan connected to the closest MB connector. Don't do random, everything will be messy
