    Can I power the board by the molex connector instead of the 12v DC jack ?
    I roughly check the schematics, it seems the answer is yes.
    May I get the confirmation from you Supports ?


    AFAIK, the molex connector is only an OUTPUT power connector, providing +12V,GND,GND,+5V.

    You can power the espressobin using the DC barrel connector and if you don’t like that you could get a male dc adapter to a terminal block so you would be using a couple of cables to power it.


    The purpose of what I was asking is that I am making it a NAS with several disks and power all of them by a ATX power supplier.
    It will be more efficient to power the board by the molex port if it can be, which not only save a dummy molex->dc5.5 adapter, but also save the power from converting 12v->5v on the board.

    I am still waiting for an official respond.
