actually, someone from the delta fanatics thread answered my question regarding conflicting advertised amperage draw and amperage draw tagged on the actual fan
which is what i was actually thinking, but wasn't sure about. did some more research and confirmed that he is right. amp values marked on delta fans are peak start-up power draws, and advertised specs are amp draws after fans stabilized. I'm leaving my current fan configuration as is
if my fan header blows, IOSEFINI can say, "I told you so." lol

Once the rotation is stabilized, it will consume the current level as the specification.
