I bought 2 internal fans today.

They had little connectors that pluged into the motherboard.
My motherboard has 4 fan connections, but only had one used for the CPU.

The fans I bought today are rated at a 0.14A current draw
I couldn't find how much power the board can handle in the manual: Tyan S1854 Trinity 400 MotherBoard

So now I have 3 fans powered by the motherboard, is this too much load?

You should be fine, I have 7 fans in mine, and believe me, it's a loud bastard, but a cool bastard.:thumbup

I just leave my case open on both sides...might add a fan sooner or later. I don't think 3 fans would be too much draw on the mother board.

Ryan, you should be just fine--most motherboards will carry around 1-2 amps thru the Fan header.

My PC (Abit KT7A mainboard) is currently running 4 fans--not sure of the rated load of each one of the 3 case fans, but my CPU fan (Thermaltake Volcano 7) has a rated max current of 0.45A @ 5000 RPM fan speed. Since your extra fans combined don't add up to that much, I'd say you're in a safe zone
