comment How can a case fan with a 8pin connector plug into the 4pin fan header on the motherboard?
To avoid damage, I am not going to directly connect it to the motherboard 4 pin fan header. But if the 8pin connector is replaced with a standard molex 4pin connector and then directly plugged into the PSU rather than the motherboard, which allows many more amps, will this way work without any damage? If yes, will the fan speed control (either by voltage / PWM) still work?

It requires 4 Amps, so if my motherboard does not supply it with that much. Will it still work but at a lower speed?

If I really don't want to give up the fan, will cutting off its 8pin connector and then replace it with a 4pin connector work?

Swapping them is a good idea but it may lose the warranty, I would avoid doing so if the speed is the same.

Yes, this is the correct way to do this. For each mail merge label, playing with its paragraph before/after spacing will allow us to position it on the document more accurately.
