Help with my SSD power connector

Hello. So I was wondering if I can do this with out causing any damage? I have the Samsung 830 128gb SSD. The power cable fits in the back of the drive and the end is a 4pin male molex. I have 3 built in case fans (Zalman Z11 plus) that are also 4 pin male molex connectors. I have a peripheral cable with 3 4pin female connectors that connect into my case fan (PC Power & Cooling Silencer MK III 600W psu) Also on the end of this is a connector that looks like it could connect to my Mobo (Asrock Z77 Extreme 4).

When I connect all 3 fans to it one of the fans appears to have a female hook up to the back of it. Can I plug my SSD into it and have all 3 fans and the ssd running on the same connector?

Also, that open connector that looks like it goes to the mobo. Can I leave that and not plug it into anything or is that a bad idea?

I posted links to the items below if you all need them. Thanks for helping a confused noob.
