Power Overide for FusionIO IOScale cards, how much can the bus take?

I am wanting to put five IOScale SSDs into a DL580 G7 (with PCIe expansion board).   The question is that the cards will throttle down if not supplied with enough power ie above 25W default PCIe G2 spec.  However the cards are able to draw more if allowed via config settings, so will the bus melt if I draw 75W X 5?

Hi,

 

IoScale products does not require more than 25W from PCIe slot, so you are fine using 5 in a DL580.

 

Only HP IO accelerator / IoDrive duos, like 2.4TB,  have extra power requirement.

 

Hope this helps
