Strix X370-F Lighting Stuff

Hey,

So a few days ago I made a thread asking about lighting on the Asus ROG Strix X370-F:

So, I followed the advice I was given and checked out the manual of the mobo in question to see what the maximum voltage was. It says that:

 

[Each] RGB header supports 5050 RGB multi-color LED strips (12V/G/R/B), with a maximum
power rating of 2A (12V), and no longer than 2 m.

 

Now, I know absolutely nothing about electronics, so I just want to be clear. To the first header (via a 3 way splitter), I will attach 3 CM Masterfan Pro 120 RGB fans (4 leds I believe on each fan). To the second header (also via a splitter), I will attach 2 of those same fans and one 30cm RGB strip. 

 

Basically I just want to be sure that the "amperage" isn't a problem, and everything will run without shorting out or anything.

 

One last thing, on the product page for the fans, it says they are Aura ready, but at the bottom of the page my motherboard is not listed in the "recommended motherboard" list. I presume that the mobo list is pretty arbitrary (it lists only old z170 and z270 boards), but I just want to double check that compatibility relies on software and not hardware.

 

Thanks,

Jaeger
