Well that is specked out with 7970s so do you think you will exceed the 7970 TDP? if so your PSU is cutting it close. I would also read a review on how much your PSU tested out with because for example my Ultra X4 1200 only tested out at 1100 or something like that.
You sound pretty legit with that psu though. 1700-1800w to my understanding is the max output you can get on a 15a breaker with voltages between 115-120. So you are in a nice play it safe area where you can max out your PC and hopefully other things in the circuit wont cause a trip... LIKE WINDOW AC UNIT!!!!
This is given that you never hit a total system load of over 90% Meaning benching or folding with all the CPUs and GPUs running at 100% Because then the CPU TDP would be over 90 and the total system usage would be over 90 and you would probably right at that limit of 1200w if it is even available which it is not if your voltage in is less than what the 1200 is rated at which can happen.
Other thing to check as for the review of your PSU is if the thermal shutdown worked.
As for the not enough connecters I have a ton of molex to 6 and molex to 8 adapters. You can buy them at frys.com or tons of other places.
My opinion though is hard wire them in just take the connecters off them and hard wire them in yourself.
