Hi everyone,
I apologize in advance if I'm asking at the wrong section, but I just want to know if the case fans for the case antec 300 and the additional 120mm fan (5 in total) will all fit onto the PSU I have, which is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... Would I need to buy additional cables or splitters or etc? The motherboard I have only has 1 fan connector so I prob won't be plugging any fans into that.
Thanks for your time and I'd greatly appreciate any help from you.

You'll be fine just daisy chain the molex plugs.

will work fine :)  but if possible i'd fit the front two fans onto the motherboard headers for automatic/manual speed control thru bios or fit a speed control for them - i own a 300 myself & the front fans running @ 100% speed via a molex connection can get pretty noisy :??:

Thanks for the replies, but one more quick question.
Would the psu and case work with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ?
And I assume it is okay to just chain all 5 fans together into one molex connector plug and into the psu?
and the heat sink's fan (hyper 212+) will just go into the fan socket on the mobo

You're good that mobo has a SYS_fan header on the bottom right corner.
I doubt you'll have a problem my Antec 902 comes with 4 stock fans all supplied via molex/psu.
Additional fan using mobo sys_fan header.
