OmniAdapter 1G power question

I just received an OmniAdapter 1G with 4 RJ45 ports, the spec says it draws 25W, my server supplies 25W via the PCIE adapter. My question is, I noticed a PC Power plug on the top of the card, is the card expecting power from both the PCIE slot and this connector? In other words will I burn up traces if I draw all the power from the PCIE connector? Sounds simple, but the card is expensive and I do not want to damage it.

Thanks,
Mark

Hi, Mark-

It is not necessary to supply power to the connector on the card itself.
