Yes it will, I have the same exact setup on my end with water cooling and 3 hard drives as well as a EVGA GT 620.
Also, my FX 6300 has been OC'd to 4.2 GHz from stock.

Read your motherboard manual.
The 4 pin connector may be all you need.
If necessary, there are molex to 8 pin adapters that you could use.
