Push/Pull fan configuration on EVGA X58 SLI Tags: Heatsinks Configuration Fan Overclocking Last response: July 19, 2010 7:28 PM in Overclocking Share rubenhak July 16, 2010 12:01:36 AM Hi, I'm thinking about setting up push/pull dual config fans on my motherboard and want these fans to be controlled with a smart fan. At this point I got 2 GELID SILENT 120 PWM fans and GELID PWM Y CABLE ADAPTER. I looked to the specs of the fan and it seems like it consumes 0.18 Amps and for both of them it will be 0.36Amps. The maximum for the mobo head is 1Amp right? Will it be safe to connect these fans to my mobo? Thank you very much, Ruben.

After all EVGA are quality and rock solid boards. Hope this helped, Patrick m 0 l rubenhak July 16, 2010 6:48:40 PM Hi supersnicker, Thanks for feedback. Will connect these fans within next 2 days. will let you know how it works. Also thinking about if it is worth putting a fuse so if for some reason current goes higher it does not burn the motherboard. What you think? will it be an overkill?
