generally fan controllers don't have OCP. So overloading a fan header leads to physical damage.I'm taking notes here . I have a few questions so far.
Component quality: How do you find this out. Like is Vishay actually better than Renesas? This goes down a rabbit hole like what determines the quality of a component. We could do facts like Renesas sells higher amp MOSFETS, but is it actually better in the same class. Datasheets are often not available and those efficiency curves are generally "best case.
Also Curious about the current (amps) in a fan header. If the manual doesn't list it, does anyone know a good way to measure this? Should I just daisy chain fans until the fans stop spinning?
Also on the topic of VRM quality. Sometimes the component manufacturer screws up. Sometimes the mothboard manufacturer implements the components wrong.
