You can use the ribbon cable, however, keep in mind that you won't have any access to the RILOE if there is a power outage or the server is unplugged.

If the server is plugged in, you will still receive power to the RILOE - even if the server is powered down - via the ribbon cable... The only thing you won't have is if the server is physically unplugged, and you don't use the external PS for the RILOE II, you won't be able to tell that the server does not have power - or read IML's, things like that.
