M7G fan header wattage?

Does anybody know what the max wattage allowed is per fan header on the Maximus VII GENE? I would like to use splitters to hook up multiple PWM fans per header if possible but don't want to overload the headers. Thanks in advance for any info!

max 1 amp per header.

How many watt is 1 amp?

1 amp at 12 volt to be more precise. This gives a maximum of 12 watts total on a single header, but you should allow for some margin. Don't go above 11 watts.
