You can connect the fan molexes together, I do it for my radiator fans. You essential are creating a parallel string of fans.

In terms of electricity, am I creating a series or parallell circuit? If I'm creating a series circuit it makes sense that there was a problem as the voltage would drop towards the last fan, and the voltage would differ from the motherboard circuit.

I really need to brush up on my electronics if I'm to continue building my PC's.
You are correct, a series connection would be bad. There are no series power connections in PC since you want all devices to have the same voltage, whether it be 12V or 5V ect.

im not sure i understand what you mean by this. you connected a fan to the fan header? what circuit are you talking about?

generally if you smell smoke it will be coming from the powersupply not the motherboard. unless you shorted something out. however i am unclear as to what happened.
smoke does not always indicate a power supply issue, fried a fan header on an old Celeron board, smelled really bad, board still works tho

So it is safe to connect them all using one 12v molex direct from PSU. Thank you! I'm still baffled as to why my board died in that case, though I have been reading your interesting posts.. It was definitely a result of plugging into that 3 pin fan connector, as the rig was powering up fine until I made that final connection. It powered up for a split second and then died. And it definitely is a fan connector, and I definitely connected it the right way, just to confirm

Sorry for multiple posts, but..

New board came today, all is up and running. Fortunately nothing else is damaged!

I stuck simply to molex power for my case fans this time, and will be extra careful when wiring fans in the future.

Thank you to all for your time and effort, especially just_nuke_em!

Replace the motherboard and you should be good to go
This has happened to a lot of people with these Asus boards. More than likely your mobo may have taken your cpu; it's like 50/50. Asus really dropped the ball with these P67 boards as this has nothing to do with the SATA ports.

Read above. It's nothing to do with the chipset issues with sandy bridge boards, it's due to the fact I fried the board!
