I am in the process of building my first pc. My side window has four fans mounted. each fan has a molex and a 3 pin connector. Needless to say there are a ton of cables. My question is could i cut off all but one connector and then sauter the other wires together(ex. ground to ground, power to power and yellow fan speed to fan speed) so I would only have one cable to plug in? If not what is the best way to take care of the cables?

Well you could get a fan controller, I don't know of any that controls 4 fans. But I do not know much about these. The best way is to just connect it thru the PSU, attaching them together isn't a good idea. IMO.
