When you boys mod your cases, sometimes you add more case fans.
I've read a few topics on this, and one thing crops up many times.
People say, you should allways check to see if your motherboard can supply the required power for the fans you intend to fit, otherwise you might damage your motherboard.

So my question is.
Where do you find the max power your motherboard can supply, for case fans?

Not sure about the exact answer to your question but an alternative would be to get a fan controller and have your case fans run from that. The fan controller and subsequently, the fans, would all be powered off a molex connection from your PSU.
