Hi,
What is the exact card model/description?  Did you check if this card is compatible with this server?

Thank You!

Hi Suman,

Thanks for the reply.

Card model is StarTech PEXUSB3S44V 4 port Quad Bus PCI Express.

Card is detecting in OS. The problem is we want to provide additional power to the card. There is Power Port in the card, one LN4 & one SATA port. But we don't know from which port in the system board to take the power.

Kindly help on this.

Thanks!

Hi,

I checked the card specs, but looks like that cable has to be plugged into a power supply, example desktop power supplies, I could not see if this card is compatible with a server.

I went through the Q&A at Amazon regarding the extra power for this card, I see that this card is suitable for Desktops with power supplies which give out extra power.

But as far as I know, this system board cannot supply power to this card, it has to come from power supply and the server power supply cannot do that.

Thank You!
