it shouldn't over load it as it may drain the power a bit though because the current is being split so many times! there would probaly be some device's slower than over that get the power first though:P

depends on how many wattts your psu has, i have a 480 wat psu and it powers 7 fans(10 if you count its own fans)pci-e, and 4 cathode lights, i imagine if you had say a 300 watt psu, it would not be able to handle that. also it doesnt really matter a whole lot how many actual connectors you have because most of the things you plug into them have splitters.how many watts is your psu? youll probably have to open your comp and look at the label
