If you're not wiring directly to your PSU, just check your motherboard manual for the max load on the specific header.

Y plitter splits the amount of current being delivered from the 12V rail to your fans in well, half.

the manual ONLY indicates the CPU_Fan header = 1A (12W)

so by my math, (1 Fan) is 12v x .20amp = 2.4W

should be able to handle 4 or even 5 fans no??...

i'll call Asus after lunch.....mmmmm.....Thai Food.....

thx
