The PCI versions are powerless, yes. The PCI-Express ones need power though since they have the additional PLX PCI-to-PCIe bridge chip on them, which needs more power than the PCIe slot provides.

Lots of people have issues with the power connector though. I suppose you could try RMA'ing it to ASUS. Not really sure what else to say.
