My System Specs

Also your PSU should have an 8pin PCIe. Do not use that molex adapter.
I bought the gentle typhoons used, so there were no adapters unfortunately.

I seem to be confused about daisy chaining the fans. I just tried (I guess not very hard).

I put #1 fan male molex into PSU cable female molex. I then put #1 fan female molex into #2 fan male molex.

From here I am confused because all four molex connectors on the PSU cable are female only. How do I continue the daisy chain?

Do both molex connectors on each fan need to be connected in order to function?

p.s. on the gpu power.
isn't there at least 2 X 6+2pin (you can use them as 6 or 8 pin connectors) gpu connectors from the PSU?
With a modern PSU you really shouldn't have to use molex adapters for a single card.
You are correct about the connectors from the PSU. Now I know I can use that at least until the proper the braided cable arrives. :D
