By default, the server board can provide up to 180 W of total power to the six PCIe* add-in card slots. To
support power requirements above this limit, the server board includes one white 2x2-pin power-in
connector that can be used to deliver up to 216 W of additional power to the server board. In an Intel
chassis, this connector is cabled to a matching 2x2 connector on a power distribution board. A power budget
for the complete system should be performed to determine how much supplemental power is available to
support any high-power add-in cards.
Note: In compliance with the PCIe* specification, the maximum power supported directly from a x8 PCIe*
add-in card slot = 25W. The maximum power supported directly from a x16 PCIe* add-in card slot = 75W.
