Default PSU Outputs

Hello!
I want to take power from my PC to some external LEDs.
What I want to do is take 12V from an HDD connector outside of the PC.
This will turn on and off with the PC which is ideal.
Total load will not exceed one amp but what I want to know is should I connect a fuse inline just to be safe? Or is the PSU protected well enough that it isn't needed?
The PC is a media PC so it has a minimal PSU in it, a CX430 however I am considering replacing it with an RM550x.
