If you are concerned about running them from the 5V line(it shouldn't actually be a problem). There are two other ways of doing it- You can run a pair of fans in series off the 12 V line- thus each is getting 6Volts, or as someone else mentioned you can connect the fan to a 12volt line but ground the fan on the 5Volt line and run them at 7Volts.
I have tried all these combos and they work without sending the PSU up in flames.
