Power supply issues

Hey there. So I'm in the process of building my first computer. It's essentially finished, but I'm having issues on where to plug my remaining fans in. I was told a 750w power supply was more than enough for my build, so I bought the Seasonic x-series 750w power supply. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Again, this could just be because I've never done this before and I'm not seeing something I should be, but I just can't seem to find enough connectors to plug everything in. Does this power supply come with enough connectors and have a high enough wattage for everything I need? And if so suggestions as to what I may be doing wrong? Here is my current build.

Intel i7 2600k processor
Dual gtx 560 ti SOC edition
8gb ddr3 RAM
HT Omega Claro Halo sound card
Asus P8P67 pro b3 revision
Zalman 9900 Max heat sink
1TB Samsung HDD
60gb OCZ SSD
LG blu-ray player/burner
Asus DVD player/burner

As far as fans go here they all are...

Cooler Master 200mm case fan X2
Cooler Master 230mm led fan
Cooler Master 200mm led fan
Cooler Master 120mm case fan
Cooler Master 120mm led fan

I'm currently using the Cooler Master haf-x 942 case.

The only way I've even come close to having enough connectors is by wiring 3 fans together. I don't even know if that is safe to do? But even so I'm still short. Suggestions please?

Edit: Keep in mind each graphics card takes up 2 of my 6-pin connectors.

All six fans would draw less than 2 Amps maximum from the +12 Volt rails.

Daisy chaining the fans will not be a problem because each fan draws a very low current (i.e. less than 0.3 Amps).
