Default Overuse of switches for fan on / off (O/I)

Ok heres my point. If I switch my fan at the top on and off to many times will I damage my Mobo? Will my Mobo brun out? Will the cables burn? or will i have a short?

Help me. As I just put a 3 switch controller hoping to get 3 fans into it. I just put the top fan on. Still more to do tommorrow.

Thanks

Chris::..


P.S. My switch should be finished tomorrow, I might post some pics of my mod so far.

should not burn anything but if you switch it like 16 times a second for a minute or couple of minutes then it might damage the fan power circut.

lol, that would also sum up for 1000 switch clicks per minute which is insane, if you can keep it up for like 5mins you'll hold the world record for switch... switching?

Either way I don't suggest you to play around with it all day long, and it should be just fine, enjoy it!
