Fan Connector Question for my H70 and Asus Sabertooth P67

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,

The Corsair H70 instructionns say I should connect the fans (via the Y adapter) into the CPU_FAN header. The instructions for my Asus Sabertooth P67 however say that the CPU_FAN connector on my MOBO supports a CPU of maximum 1A (12 W) fan power. Can I use the CPU-FAN connector on the MOBO? Or will it not have enough power for both 120mm fans?

Thanks!

I don't think the H70 fans are very powerful, so they shouldn't go over the 1amp mark. Just look on the fan and see what they are rated for.
