tri-cools are .25A at high speed. so times 6 is 1.5A on the 12V line.
HHD & DVD are usually about .5A on the 12V and the same for the 5V. Max.
You could hook them all up to the same output and not worry about overloading or blowing anything.
12V: 1.5+0.5+0.5=2.5A max.
5V: 0.5+0.5=1A max.
Thats about 1/4 of the maximum capacity of the wires.

usually fans get their power from the fan controller though, but I don't know how you have them hooked up,
but either way, no worries.
