I will be mounting 4 Cooler Master Excalibur R4-EXBB-20PK-R0 120mm Case
Fans in a push pull configuration on a Corsair H100. All 4 fans will be plugged into
the CPU_Fan and the CPU_Opt_Fan connections on the P9x79 Pro via two Gelid
Solutions Model CA-PWM 350 mm PWM Y Cable Splitters.
So, 2 fans in each connection. I want to be sure that the connection can handle both
fans. Here are all the power details of the fans and P9x79 Pro that I can find:
A single Cooler Master Excalibur:
Voltage: 12 V DC,
Current (Ampere): 0.45A Max.,
Power consumption: 6 W Max.
Each CPU Fan connection on the P9x79 Pro:
Supports a maximum 1A (12 W) fan power
Can I put 2 of the Cooler Master Excalibur fans on a single CPU Fan connection of
the P9x79 Pro?
Is it safe? Am I pushing the limit of that connection too far?
I have already asked Asus and they took the 'no liability' way out and said they do not know. So here I am...
