Just about to build my new pc but i have too many fans and not enough power sources!!1
Is there any easy way to join up say 3 connectors into one so that it reduces the amount of connectors!!!"

or you could get a proper fan controller that'll fit in a 3.5 or 5.25 drive bay...

The fan headers on the mobo cant provide enough amps for multiple fans but if the fans have 'normal' molex connectors then you can plug as many as you possibly can on a single cable, use some Y-type extensions cables if needed

Step one: Locate spare molex plug.
Step two: Splice as many fans as possible onto it.

Down and dirty but it works.
I have 4 120mm's spliced into one molex plug running just fine.
