Fan header Wattage?

Hi guys,

Question I'm moving from my ROG formula X79 to either the deluxe or the extreme X99 Mobo's. My cpu cooler is the AIO Swiftech H320 which i run THREE of my fav sanyo denki san ace 109R1212H1011 fans. Best rad undervolted fan u can get(my opinion) but they draw alot of power, even undervolted as a i run them. Sanyo denki suggest the fan headers must be able to handle 6.24w a channel.

I'm guessing the motherboard headers on either of these 2 boards cant do that but can the extra fan board supplied with the Deluxe?

Do i need to get a separate fan controller like the one built into my NZXT 830 case? I'd really like to make use of the Asus fan software this time around. Dont wanna blow the fan headers on my new mobo......

Cheers

Mike.

The fan headers on all these boards are 1A 12W

The fan extension looks to be powered by a molex connection...

or do you mean three fans off one header in which case no, not a good idea of course...
