Could anyone tell me the maximum amount of watts the fan headers on an Abit KT7A can take.
Thanks.

It can't take a 60mm Delta black label fan, that's for sure. That would fry the header atleast, possibly the mobo.

I was wondering if the fan on the Vantec FCE-62540D would blow out a fan header on the Abit KT7A.
Thanks.

Would I run any chance of blowing a fan header when using a Delta 30cfm fan?
Thanks.

Well, I suppose you have to look at the fan and see what it's ratted wattage is (6W max) or what it's rated current is (.5A max). BTW wattage = voltage times current IE 12 * .5=6
