I have a new build and am using the Temptest with all 6 fans. However the mobo does not have 6 plugs for the fans, only 3. Is connecting the molex 4's enough or are the molex 4's simply to power the lighting in the case?

molex connectors are fine for powering fans. The advantage to plugging them into the mobo is that some mobos come with programs that allow you to adjust the speed of the fans. If you plug them directly in via molex they will just run full power 100% of the time. If you're concerned with adjusting speed you can buy a simple fan controller and install the extra fans using it.
