I have a 50mm fan running on the 5v standy from under the power plug. Im planning on adding a switch for both stock fans to run from the same 5v standby source after i turn off my xbox to cool it down properly. There will be 3 fans in total connected to the same pin cooling the xbox while its off. The 50mm will be runnin all the time. The stock fans will only run when i power off the xbox. Is it fine for the 5v source? could there be any problems? thanks

With one of my xboxs I ran 2 60mm fans and both stock fans off the same 5v source. I then had a switch that would turn them on/off.

I'd say you should be fine.
