just connect the fans to the PSU via a molex adaptor if they are 3 pin fans

Is that the only way you mean you all either have a molex or just one fan?

You can modify them by using the 5v or 12v feed from one of the balum connectors. If you want to make a nice mod you can use solder. You should be able to put 2 fans on 1 and 3 on another. Dunno if I would put all 5 on 1 connector.

The molex connectors is the better choice. That way you dont have to worry about how much power youre pulling.

If you dont mind spending more money you could buy a fan controller add-on. I bought this one for my boss's computer:

ENERMAX's Aluminum UC-A07FATR2 (BLACK) Multifunction Transfer Panel. Features:
Over Heat & Low RPM Alarm.
Dual Temperature Monitors.
Dual Fan Speed & Temperature LED Display.
Fan Speed Adjustable.
Fits In Standard 5.25 Drive Bay.
2 USB2.0 Ports.
1 Firewire Ports. (IEEE 1394)

$28.99 at newegg, its very nice.
