[Node Duo] Can I install a PCIe card that requires more than 25W of power?

If you install only one PCIe card and power delivery is not used, the PCIe slot can provide up to 75W of power. Otherwise, you will have to upgrade the power adapter from the standard 150W to 250W. This will provide up to 75W of power per slot. If the PCIe card requires even more power, you can remove the breakaway-tab on the back panel and then run a cable from an additional PSU directly to the PCIe card (e.g. 6+2-pin PCIe power cable).
