3 Pin header wattage?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What's the maximum wattage that the 3pin fan header can deliver on the GA-F2A85XN-WIFI?

Motherboard manual doesn't state anything about that and can't find any info anywhere, got a new fan for the rig that is rated at 0.41 amps and don't know if I should connect it or not to the motherboard header

I believe that the majority of motherboard fan headers are rated for 1 amp, i have 3 fans with a total of 0.91amp connected to a single header and they work just fine.
