    I recently purchased Asus z490e motherboard.
    It has 2 argb header.
    One is occupied by the argb fans, the other one is powering 2 argb strips, deepcool 200 pro.
    I was thinking of installing 2 more to cover all the four sides of the case.
    But, according to the user manual, the header supports 3 amps/15 watts max at 5v, and the strips are 0.9 amps per strip, which is 3.6 amps/18 watts for four strips.

    So my question is, can the header handle extra 0.6 amps/3 watts or will it burn out..???
