I'm starting a new HTPC build and am trying to figure out my cable management, I'm wondering if it is safe to run two 80mm exhaust fans off of a single motherboard fan header? The fans are "Nexus Real Silent Case Fans". There rated at 10.2~13.8 volts, 0.15 Amp Max input current, & 1.8 Watts Max input power. I've read where most mobo fan headers are 0.5 Amp, but I really don't know this for sure. Anyway, do you guys think it would be safe? or could I end up burning out the fan header?

According to Asus P5QL pro manual:
"The fan connectors support cooling fans of 350 mA~2000 mA(24 W max) or a total of 1 A~7 A(84 W max)at +12V"
Your Asus mobo is better than mine so...
Your 2 fans combined use 3.6W & 0.3 A,so you are safe!
