Hi! I would like to know could I install this fan which is rated @ 0.35a into my amplifier case which has a fan rated @ 0.28a would this be ok or would that be drawing too much current. Thanks

Hello XXXX, thank you for waiting and welcome to Cooler Master Live Help! My name is XXXX XXXX and I will be assisting you today. Your case number is XXXXX and you may refer to that number for future visits. Please hold for one minute while I review your question. Thank you for your patience.
Hi XXXX. A fan rated for a higher amperage won't necessarily use it. If the power is available, it will.
This is more of a matter of whether or not your power source has enough for it, but unless you're working on some very finely tuned supply, the difference of 0.8 watts shouldn't make or break your equipment
I can't guarantee full functions because our fans are made for use in a computer, but like I said, as long as you have the available power and the connector, I don't see why it wouldn't work
Thanks for choosing Cooler Master. Have yourself a great day!
