Well even with a higher watt power supply like say a 600 watt it will still put out the same wattage to each of your devices as a 300 watt power supply It can just handle more devices without burning itself out.

Wha? I mean the plugs on the motherboard, if I plug a high wattage fan in, can it burn the headers out?

Why would it burn the headers? The headers are feeding the power, not the fan. lol

He means, will the fan suck too much juice from the fan ports.

And no, it won't.
