Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Buy

It is not required to use the power connector on the card, but certain modes will only be available while using the connector. For instance, jumpers can be placed on the card to draw 12V or 5V from the power connector to assist with power output through the DB connectors. If these modes are activated without the power connector, the card will not function correctly.
