My System Specs

Default Current draw of 3 120MM fans?

Just placed an order for my new WC loop, and I'm starting to plan a full case mod to go along with it.

I'm planning on another top mount, and I'd like to also include a single variable resistor to control the three rad fans (in parallel).

Is there any reason why the volume control from an old 20W audio power amp wouldn't be able to handle the current?
