System Unit Case Fans Power Requirments

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4590 CPU @ 3.30GHz
Motherboard: BIOSTAR H81MHV3
RAM: 2x4GB 8GB Kingston Hyper X 1866 OC
Logical Disk: Kingston 120GB SSD
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 960 2GB 128bit

I'm planning to hook up six 120mm Case Fans with LED Light.
I don't overclock so the questions is, will my PSU be able to supply enough if i add 6 fans?

Fans use very little power--a watt or so.

You shouldn't have any problems due to the fans.

I have no idea if your power supply is good, bad, or indifferent, but if it has problems it won't be due to the fans.

Likewise, LEDs of the size you would find on a fan use very little power.

Yep your gpu at full load is 400w
Although you don't have a lot of head room on a 550w psu as long as the mobo has that many connection you should be okay the system will adjust to temperature.
