Asus Maximus VI Hero Fan Headers Max Wattage

Rookie

Hi,
I bought a Maximus VI hero board today. In the manual only the CPU fan header has its max wattage of 1A(12W) specified. Are the other fan headers the same? I have 3 Silverstone AP 182 fans ~1.8A (15W). Will the motherboard be able to power these?

Yeah, it's the same for the other headers. The max output is 1A. If you're planning to connect multiple fans to one header, make sure you don't exceed 1A.

Just researched this for the Maximus VII Hero board also, it applies the same for voltages/amps
