My motherboard fan headers support fans up to 0.74A or 8.88W. I want to purchase a 12 VDC fan that's operation voltage is 6.0 to 12.8 VDC. The fan has a rated current of 0.70A or 8.40W. Is there any chance that the fan could run at the maximum 12.8 VDC or 8.96W, exceeding my motherboard fan headers' maximum rated current and damaging the fan or motherboard?
