How To Add More Components to Power Supply

I'm working on a school project and it's going to get very hot and I want to cool it. My idea was to use 80mm case fans and power them using an extra PSU I have lying around.I want to run eight case fans off this one power supply but I believe there are not that many connectors available on my PSU (I'm unable to check at the moment).

I believe it is a 200 watt power supply so it will be able to power eight fans, I just don't know if I'll be able to connect them all.

Is it possible to add more connectors to a power supply than the default amount?

You can add adapters easy enough. Fans don't use much power so you might even be able to avoid having the 2nd PSU altogether.

Also some fans will allow you to daisy chain them allowing you to use only one PSU connection.

Sounds like fun, be sure to ask any more questions and post up pics if you take any.

What exactly are you doing, like measuring before and after temps or something?
