Could be something or nothing but.....
CPU fan started making a few noises so I bought a new fan (Thermaltake). The new fan states that it uses 6 watts but M/B says that connectors support cooling fans 4.2 watts or less. I know I should have checked before and don't ask why I didn't look cos I don't know (impulse buying I suppose). So question is would it be ok to still use connectors or would it damage the M/B.
I have plenty of spare connectors on PSU which I could use 3 pin to 4 pin connectors, which should be ok (hopefully lol).
