    Default Sniper 5 x Fan headers = max power draw?

    Hello,

    I'm building a system around the Sniper motherboard, and want to use all five fan headers to power six fans, with a total power draw of 8.7w.

    Two fans will share one headers, and their combined power draw is 2.4w.

    Will I run into any power contraints on this motherboard with these fans? They are fairly low power fans, but if anyone has any insight, I'd appreciate it.

    Unless they have changed things, which I do not think they have, the max power per header is 3 amps @ 12W per header.

    So you need to look at the amps on each you plan to combine.

    Well, if my math works out right, 8.7w / 12v = .725A (for all fans combined)

    So I appear to be well within the power constraints. They aren't super high speed deltas; they're just low power noiseblockers.

    Thanks for the feedback.
