does my fan use to much power for my mobo

You should be fine as I believe most headers are 1-2 amps.. I wouldn't do more than 2 on one header, though.. If you feel this is a problem then just get a hub that powers through SATA/Molex..

recently got me a noctua industrial 140mm 3000rpm nf-a14 and i was stupid and forgot to look at its power requirments before buying it, ive heard that fans sucking to much power from the mobo can kill it, will my fan kill my mobo if i plug it in? it uses 0.55 amps 6.6 watts and dc12v
