12V 3A power supply and NVMe - PCIe
#1
Is the 12V 3A power supply enough if I use the PCI-e X4 to M.2/NGFF NVMe SSD interfce card ?
Even if I add things like USB keyboard, USB to ethernet and hdmi screen ?
Or should I buy the 5A one ?

thank you guy

I read the wiki page, and it's getting more confusing.
It is said that we have to use the 5A power supply if we use the PCIe to SATA card because this card use lots of power.
There is no warning on the PCIe to NVMe card section, should we conclude that the 3A is enough ?
thanks

The 5A option is for powering HDDs from the board.
