On 18 Feb 2015, Conrad Kostecki told this:

> Please note that there is limited power available for the three PCI expansion connectors.
> There are only 20W available on the 3.3V power pins and 5V pins combined.
> If a 2.5” hard disk is used, it will also need to share the available power.
> An onboard DC-DC converter supplies +12V @ 0.3A and 12V @ 0.1A to the PCI connector.
> If the board is powered by 12V then a bypass circuit will supply up to 1A of the 12V to the PCI connector.

Still... power-wise, the only things I have plugged into mine are the
lan1741 and a Simtec Entropy Key into the USB port.

I'll do a power monitor of the thing with some major network traffic
this weekend and see what happens.
