Does it matter if they have those little "P2 " whatever stamped on them?

All of them are putting out the same amount of power (12 volts if I am not mistaken) so it doesn't matter which one you plug into the card, they will all do the same thing...

i thought that the four pins corresponded to the four voltages that drives need+12,-12,+5,-5 i dont see how one of these could power a drive otherwise 12 is needed for servo motors and 5 for eveything else.correct me if im wrong.

Counter strike- you should have one more lurking in there somewhere.

Thanks a bunch, I got it, never even noticed that connector off the side XD I used a 12v connector, and the speeds went back to 500/900.

Ty!
