Hi there,

 

Is the listed amps on the spec sheets for both ML120 and ML140 Pro fans the startup power draw? Or is that just the operating power draw?

 

Does anyone have the startup power draw info? If so, please share.

 

Thank you!

That's the max power draw. Typically, they will use much less. However, that's the guideline that you should follow when planning power usage.

 

What is it, specifically, that you are planning?

 

 

My case has 6 ML140 fans, to be safe I'd limit them to two per mobo fan header (1A).

You're more than fine at ~0.20A per fan. Since they are PWM motors, there shouldn't really be a huge power on spike and I can't recall a single instance of blown headers or fan controllers with ML Pro fans. I've been running triples for a long time off a 1A header.
