yes, I am guessing that Molex is for the 2 Fans and drives and the 3 SATA power are for the drives as well, need to plug them all in.
That SAS/SATA connector wording is kinda confusing. I'll see what I can find.

That picture only shows one half of the backplane if I remember correctly. That is 4 drives, if you look in the case, the back plane should be twice as tall and will have 8 SATA and 8 SAS connectors.
You will use the 8 SATA labeled ones.

edit: found a pic
