Was looking online and I believe its rated at 1.6 amps per channel, is this correct? I have 10 .30 amp fans to connect and want to make sure since there are only 4 channels.
Was also reading something about led and rgb control. If this is correct can someone shed some light on this subject? I think it said 2 channels for leds, and want to make sure. If leds are controllable, do they simply on and off or can voltage be varied to dim lighting?
Thanks in advance.
If I recall correctly, Shoggy said the max for a channel was 1.65A, but that the total for all 4 channels was 5A.
Keep in mind that the 5 series gets hot quickly at mid range output voltages, so be sure to use the passive heatsink at a minimum, or opt for the water block if you plan to push it.
If you need to have 2 chans more loaded than the others, use 1 and 4 for the heavier loads, as that will take most advantage of the heatsink, especially if using the passive one.
