How I estimated the 10W for fans and harddisk:
SSD and HDD (3W),
2x 120mm (rated 12V 0.2A) fans = 4.8W
CPU fan maybe 2-3W

The 10W for the motherboard/memory is just a guess, but it could be more as 2 memory modules might already consume that as pointed out by madpoo.
I withdraw my skepticism. That all sounds reasonable. As I said, my system is populated with a number of HDDs and some rather powerful fans. It skews my perceptions.
