Best way to power PCI Express?

Hi guys,

 

I want to fit a satellite tuner card in my gen8 that is powered by PCI express power.

 

I was wondering if anyone has done this and what the suggested method would be?

 

I could split the floppy connector which currently powers the sata boot drive or I could split the molex connector which I'm assuming powers the hhds?

 

Any ideas?

 

Kind regards,

 

John

I'm not sure of the power draw, but other than the single ssd and a drive in each of the 4 bays, there's nothing fancy.

If the tuner is looking for an additional power connection its draw could be quite high.

Something to watch for if you have issues after you install it.
