    Question FAN ports on the STRIX Z390-E

    i'm building a new PC rn using the STRIX Z390-E
    i'm watercooling my build using an DDC pump from EK-Waterblocks (the EK-XTOP DDC 3.2 PWM Elite to be exact) and wanted to ask if it's save to plug it into the W_PUMP+ port because the port is stated in the manual with 3A 36W and the pump runns at 18W so i'm kinda confused if that will work out since it's my first time using a pump using a PWM port.
    I already read on another forum that the W_PUMP+ port only gets unlocked when you activate the AIO_PUMP in the BIOS if i'm not misstaken. Image from the EKWB site on the pump specs

    The pump will only pull the wattage it needs, 3A 36W means it's 12V. I don't see why there would an issue.
